2013 Midseason Top Cubs Prospects

Prior to the start of the season, Uncle Dave and I published our 2013 top Cubs prospects. We borrowed the system from Hockey's Future, which looks at both upside and floor. The rankings never really interested me, but there's a nice way to create a ranking because that's what people like. You can read the explanation of the system if you didn't read it the first time or can't remember what it was. I'm not going to waste time with that. Below are the ratings, listed in order of highest ceiling. Myles did much of the work this time.

Since so many love rankings, it's pretty easy to get based on these ratings. Multiply the upside by 10 and subtract 5 for each letter below A.

  • 65: Javier Baez, Jorge Soler
  • 60: Kris Bryant, Albert Almora, Arismendy Alcantara, Dan Vogelbach
  • 55: Pierce Johnson, Arodys Vizcaino
  • 50: Ronald Torreyes, Junior Lake, Dillon Maples, Duane Underwood
  • 45: Logan Watkins, Yoanner Negrin, Jeimer Candelario, Rubi Silva, Gioskar Amaya, Paul Blackburn, Trey Masek
  • 40: Brett Jackson, Josh Vitters, Rob Zastryzni
