Stock Up, Stock Down for Chicago Cubs' Top 10 Prospects in Week 21
Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

The month of September means roster expansion and minor league call-ups across the league. While many of the Cubs top prospects are still in the low minors, we could see at least a few top guys make their debuts next month.

Shortstop Javier Baez is a long shot to be among them, but he's turned in a phenomenal season that could end in Minor League Player of the Year honors when all is said and done. Though, George Springer of the Astros still looks like the front-runner for that award at this point.

Baez is not the only Cubs farmhand having a solid year either, and here is an updated look at how each of the team's top 10 active prospects performed last week and whether their stock is up or down.

 

Top prospect rankings according to MLB.com Prospect Watch.

*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 homers and 35 RBI at the time of the injury.

*No. 6 prospect SP Arodys Vizcaino (recovering from Tommy John surgery) is currently sidelined and will not be included until he's active.

*No. 9 prospect OF Junior Lake was recently called up to the majors, so he will no longer be included here. He was hitting .295/.341/.462 with four home runs and 18 RBI at the time of the call-up.

*No. 13 prospect CF Brett Jackson was demoted to Double-A upon returning from a strained quad and is hitting .218/.295/.341 with 90 strikeouts in 252 at-bats. He won't be included until he at least returns to Triple-A, as it's safe to assume his stock is down after being demoted.
