Chicago Cubs Top 10 Prospects

Published

on


 

These are my Prospect One top 10 prospects for the Chicago Cubs organization. You can find all teams organizational ranks, which go beyond the top 10, plus my top 500 prospect ranks which are updated monthly when you join up at the ITL ARMY. Find the link below.

 

Check out the NL Central Top 10 Team Prospects podcast when Scott Bogman interviews me on my thoughts on these players plus a look beyond the top 10 for some teams.

1) Adbert Alzolay SP

Alzolay isn’t a very big guy on the mound, but he pitches like it. Some think that size could move him to the bullpen, which might be the case, but I like Alzolay’s shot in the rotation. The first time I saw him was following a brilliant Justus sheffield performance in the fall league. Alzolay was overshadowed a bit, but actually reminded me a bit of Sheffield. He was throwing upper-mid 90’s, most likely due to the one inning he was working, but sits lower 90’s. His curve looked like a true second offering, and he’s got a average change as well.


2) Jose Albertos SP

Albertos pushes right at Alzolay as the top Cubs prospect. He’s a distance away, but might have the best pitch mix in the organzation. Albertos has a solid mid 90’s FB that he commands well in the zone, an ok curve, but it’s the changeup that is going to win over fantasy hearts. This is a plus plus pitch that will give him the ability to rack up strikeouts as he moves up the system. 2018 might be the final year before his cost takes a big jump and he’s on everyone’s radar, so if you’re looking for a late post 150 starting pitcher, Albertos is a good bet.


3) Aramis Ademan SS

Ademan has been thrust into the top position player spot for the Cubs with the exodus of prospects via trade. Ademan would probably sit closer to 5-7 on most other squads. He’s average on power with the hope for the teens, but could post 20+ SB, which if you add in his good plate presence, he would be a pretty valuable asset if it all pans out. His size probably doesn’t play for him to move to 3B, and though he could stay at SS, I think he makes a move to 2B. I wouldn’t say I am aggressive on him, nor is he a target, but I wouldn’t be against holding out to see what he becomes.


4) Alex Lange SP

Their first round pick in 2017, Lange I see as a swing prospect. He could go either way as a starter or bullpen arm. It will all come down to his control. He had one of, if not the best curve from 2017 to go with a low 90’s FB and a decent change. Lange spent his first pro year in the AZL. 2018 is important for me as he will potentially be a bit older in low-A ball pending assignment.


5) Nelson Velazquez OF

Velazquez has the power that is worth taking a shot at drafting earlier than a few other talented pitchers in the system. There are some hole in the swing issues that he is going to have to get better at as he moves up in the system, but the power is what we’d expect from a corner outfielder. He might show some speed earlier in his career in the majors (which is a ways away), but might give as he matures. In my deeper dynasty leagues, I’d like to target Velazquez after the 250 range while no one is thinking about him.


6) Oscar De La Cruz SP

7) Brendan Little SP

8) Wladimir Galindo 3B

9) David Bote 2B

10) Eddy Julio Martinez OF
