3. Miguel Amaya

One of the Cubs' prized international free agent additions in 2015, Catcher Miguel Amaya used to look like the natural successor to Willson Contreras. However, a handful of injuries have limited Amaya from even making it to Triple-A yet. As recently as 2021, the young catcher was ranked third on the Cubs' top prospect list due to his excellent catching ability. People in the Cubs system routinely salute Amaya's skills behind the plate and his framing. If he can stay healthy and improve his hitting, there is still time for the 24-year-old to make an impact on the big league squad.
