The Cubs sent eight prospects to the Arizona Fall League's Mesa Solar Sox. The AFL is one of the most exciting times of the year for teams and scouts as the league's best prospects converge on Arizona.
Most teams send a few guys who are household names, at least to the more astute fan. It's the names you don't know that you want to look into as they are the guys right around the corner, having been awarded for making significant strides or given the stint because they were injured and need the work.
The Cubs' prospects are the talk of the town these days. Albert Almora, Jorge Soler and Kris Bryant are drawing high praise. Newly acquired pitchers via trade and signings or the draft have performed well, giving Chicago its most exciting set of arms in years.
Let's take a look at the prospects the Cubs sent to the Arizona Fall League this year.
