Stock Up, Stock Down for Chicago Cubs' Top 10 Prospects for Week 16
Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

With the MLB trade deadline a little over a week away, the Chicago Cubs are expected to be as active as anyone, with Matt Garza, Kevin Gregg, Alfonso Soriano and others potentially on the move.

What has already been a vastly improved farm system will no doubt be even better by the time the calendar turns over to August. Much of the top talent is still in the low minors, but last week did see Junior Lake make his big league debut.

For now, here is an updated look at how the team's top 10 prospects currently in action performed last week, and whether their stock is trending up or down.

 

Note: Top prospects according to Baseball America Prospect Handbook.

*No. 3 prospect RF Jorge Soler (fractured left shin) is currently sidelined and will not be included until he's active. He was hitting .281/.343/.467 with eight HR and 35 RBI at the time of the injury.

*No. 4 prospect SP Arodys Vizcaino (recovering from Tommy John surgery) is currently sidelined and will not be included until he's active.

*No. 5 prospect CF Brett Jackson (strained quad) is currently sidelined and will not be included until he's active. He was hitting .223/.300/.367 with six HR and 23 RBI at the time of the injury.

*No. 9 prospect RP Kyuji Fujikawa (Tommy John surgery) is sidelined for the remainder of the season.
