This past week has been all over the place for the minor league squads of the Chicago Cubs. Despite the wins and losses, there has been a crop of young guys stepping up over the past week in a big way. Looking at each level, we have touched on some of these guys more than others. However, it is still essential to bring to light what is going on with our lower-level guys.

Of the names on this list, some are relatively close to reaching the majors. One guy, who is just 20 years old, has a ton of potential and provides more depth at a much-needed position. As I have discussed before, the Cubs have one of the more underrated farm systems in baseball.

They are not a top ten system in any regard. However, what they miss in flashy talent outside of their top names makes up for in depth.
