Breaking Down Chicago Cubs' Key Position Battles

One of the most exciting parts about being a team in full-blown rebuilding mode is the way it makes spring training infinitely more watchable. Top prospects are going to be given a bigger stage with more opportunities to show fans and teams what the future holds. 

For a franchise like the Chicago Cubs, which has been in a perpetual state of rebuilding for more than 100 years, promising fans the future doesn't really mean a lot to them. It should in 2014, because this is as good a farm system as they have had in a long time. 

With high-end talent, as well as quality depth at every level of the minors, the Cubs enter this season with more than a few questions around the diamond. That's why every game in March is so important for the players in camp and for the team to get a look at adjustments that have been made since the end of last season. 

Now that we have a sample size, albeit small, to judge players battling it out for a starting job and/or spot on the 25-man roster, here is a breakdown of the Cubs' key position battles.
