Marc Hulet's Top 10 prospects

I'm not a huge fan of the Hulet rankings, but they are still worth something. His Cubs list is right here, and it's interesting at the end.

1. Javier Baez (70)
2. Kris Bryant (70)
3. Albert Almora (65)
4. Jorge Soler (60)
5. Arismendy Alcantara (60)
6. Pierce Johnson (55)
7. C.J. Edwards (55)
8. Dan Vogelbach (55)

The Career Outlook: The young hitter should be ready to assume the Cubs’ starting first base gig in late 2015 or early 2016 — assuming he can wrestle the starting gig away from the enigmatic Anthony Rizzo. Vogelbach should develop into an above-average first baseman albeit it with a shortened prime due to his body type.

9. Arodys Vizcaino (55)
10. Kyle Hendricks (50)

Yeah, I'm not sure Vogelbach is going to move Rizzo off 1st. I'm also not sure that Hendricks is a surefire No. 4 with some seasons as a No. 3. There's no out pitch in his arsenal, so he's essentially locked into a innings-eater type (which is fine). FWIW, Sickels had Hendricks at 16, as a C+.
