Re-Ranking the Top 10 Prospects for the Cubs After Matt Garza Trade
Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports
The Cubs acquired 3B Mike Olt on Monday.

The Chicago Cubs added to their impressive farm system on Monday. Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported the trade of right-hander Matt Garza to the Texas Rangers in exchange for right-hander Justin Grimm, third baseman Mike Olt, right-hander C.J. Edwards and two players to be named later.

The trade is reminiscent of the teams’ deal shortly before the 2012 deadline, when Chicago sent veteran starter Ryan Dempster to Texas for right-hander Kyle Hendricks and third baseman Christian Villanueva. However, there’s no question that Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer commanded a better return this year, as both Edwards and Olt now rank among the top 10 prospects in the organization.

Here’s a look at the Chicago Cubs’ top 10 prospects after the Matt Garza trade.
