The minor league season is nearing its end and with that comes a decision the Chicago Cubs need to make regarding pending minor league free agents.

As Chicago Cubs fans are well aware, free agency is always a wild experience for both baseball clubs and fans alike. While there will be shifting stars from one jersey to another on the major league side of the coin, minor league free agents can garner just as much interest.

From reports over at The Cub Reporter, the club is scheduled to see a whopping 19 minor league players hit free agency. Of course, the Cubs cannot keep everyone, which is why the decision becomes that much more critical surrounding the current stock.

Naturally, there is no point in diving into each of the 19 players individually. Instead, we will be looking into those candidates most likely to find themselves still in the organization following the cutoff point and what their specific value holds in the future.
