The Chicago Cubs are one of the best teams in the National League. While the farm system is not as strong as it once was, there are still plenty of young stars making waves on their way to the Show.

Coming into the 2019 campaign, the Chicago Cubs found themselves on the outside looking in when it came to top prospects. Of the top 100 list Major League Baseball put out earlier this year, Chicago only has two guys on that list, Myrtle Beach catcher Miguel Amaya and Tennessee shortstop Nico Hoerner.

It is an unfortunate reality to see the club representing a minuscule percentage of that top prospect list, however, do not fret Cubs fans. What the Cubs lack in top-ranked prospects, there are still plenty of guys who are progressing quickly and efficiently who could make their way to the show within the next couple seasons.

One such name is South Bend second baseman Delvin Zinn. For a guy who is still incredibly young, Zinn has undoubtedly gained valuable experience throughout his journey in the Cubs system to this point. The hope for the team who drafted Zinn twice is that he continues to perform at a high level into the future.
