2017 Midseason Prospect Rankings: The Arms

Another day, another list. After covering the top bats of the system yesterday, today we take a look at the best pitching prospects the Cubs system has to offer. This list tends to look a little stronger than the position players, with several players that could make it as potential back of the rotation starters or solid bullpen pieces in Chicago one day. The depth is definitely here in this list and should be something you show your friends when they tell you that the Cubs system has traded away all of the good prospects they have.

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