It was a rare successful week for the big league club, as the Chicago Cubs went 4-2 and recorded a series win against the Washington Nationals, while also recording victories against the Texas Rangers and St. Louis Cardinals.
That pulled them to 15-22 on the season, putting them just a game away from passing the sliding Milwaukee Brewers and climbing out of the cellar.
Looking at the big picture, however, the rebuild continues, and with that, here is our weekly look at how the team's top 10 prospects performed over the past week.
Top prospects according to Baseball America.
*No. 2 prospect Albert Almora and No. 11 prospect Juan Carlos Paniagua will start their seasons in Short-Season Class-A Boise on June 17, so until then they won't be included.
*No. 4 prospect Arodys Vizcaino is recovering from Tommy John surgery, and will not be included until he returns.
*No. 9 prospect RP Kyuji Fujikawa was not included since he is currently playing at the major league level.
