Over the past few weeks, several baseball sites have released their prospects lists, and this time It's Baseball America dropping their dynasty top 100 prospects. BA certainly gives more love to Cubs prospects, naming five in total from the organization to the top 100. As the 2023 campaign breaks out, there will likely be a couple more names added to these lists, as we've seen several sites mention the Cubs, with several just outside of that top 100 just narrowly missing the cut. Let's dive right in on who Baseball America likes from the Cubs organization.

BA Top 100 - 97. Brennen Davis

Good to see Brennen Davis still on a top 100 list here. Though he has dealt with back issues this past year, the ceiling is still high for the former #1 Cubs prospect if he can stay healthy. It was only in 2021 that Davis was promoted to Triple-A Iowa, recording a .268/.397/.536 with a 150 wRC+ and .268 ISO, albeit in a small sample size of 56 ABs. Given his potential five-tool ability, he still rates out as a 55 FV player, according to Fangraphs. It is way too early to even consider closing the book on Davis here. Although, 2023 will be a vital year for him in terms of production and health.

BA Top 100 - 83. Kevin Alcantara

Another popular name that has graced multiple top 100 lists this winter is Kevin Alcantara. At Myrtle Beach with the Pelicans, Alcantara notched a line of .273/.360/.451 with 15 HRs and 85 driven in to go along with a 124 wRC+. Fielding-wise, between time spent in CF and RF, he recorded a .0964 FPCT. Alcantara had a solid season with the bat, but his numbers were down from the Complex League between the Yankees and Cubs post-trade a year prior when he slashed .345/.423/.588 in 119 ABs. Of course, adjusting to high levels of pitching is a real thing. Hopefully, the 20-year-old outfielder will continue to do just that and keep moving up the list of Cub's top prospects.
