2017 Midseason Prospect Rankings: The Bats

After two straight seasons, the system is a little more depleted than what we are used to in Chicago. With that being said, there are still plenty of low-floor hitters in the advanced minors to go along with several high-upside athletes in the lower minors. This lists covers only the top 20 position players in the system while the top 20 pitchers will be posted tomorrow.

All stats are courtesy of Fangraphs and are current as of August 3rd.
