Stock Up, Stock Down for Chicago Cubs' Top-10 Prospects for Week 9
Charles Rex Arbogast/Associated Press

The Chicago Cubs ran into the top two teams in the National League on the road this past week, dropping two-of-three in each series, and they remain at No. 30 in this week's MLB power rankings.

As we make our way through what will likely be another long year on the North Side, more and more attention will be paid to a farm system that was ranked No. 4 in all of baseball by Baseball America entering the season.

What follows is a look at the team's current top-10 prospects and how they performed at the minor league level over the past week. This series will be updated weekly, with a stock "up," "even" or "down" indication given to each prospect based upon what direction his performance is trending.
