Cubs fans haven't had much to watch at the major league level in 2014, but the stellar performances of a number of Cubs prospects have given fans around the country something positive to talk about.
While the big league team struggles with a 32-44 record, the future stars of the team have played exceptionally well.
The Cubs promoted their last two first-round draft picks last week. They sent 2013 pick Kris Bryant to Triple-A Iowa and moved 2014 pick Kyle Schwarber to Single-A Kane County.
Both young players have hit solid since their promotions, but don't expect either to see the majors this season.
No. 1 overall prospect Javier Baez hasn't been as successful. Baez is currently hitting .229 with Triple-A Iowa. Prior to this season, Baez had been very successful in the minors. Despite his unimpressive performance this season, the Cubs will likely call him up after the trade deadline.
Let's take a look at the prospects the Cubs should call up in the second half of the 2014 season.
