Another blowout loss means it's time to look toward the future again. We can talk about how Cub pitchers once again started their merry-go-round of walks (10), while only taking 3 walks themselves -- but that would be going in circles. We talked about that here. Instead, here's an update on how the best of the Cubs prospects are doing. This isn't a list of the top 10 prospects, but rather a look at which of the Cubs prospects are performing well now. Two things about this week's list:
1) It has more players who could help this season
2) I purposely included more players that could help the Cubs in the area they need most: Hitters who'll take a walk and pitchers who don't walk hitters.
Dropping off the list this week: Josh Vitters, DJ LeMahieu, Dae Un Rhee, Michael Burgess, Matt Szczur
Note: I previously called this the Prospect Hot List, then realized I had subconsciously pilfered that title from Baseball America.
