Several Cubs prospects on Baseball America Top 20 League Prospects lists

Shortstop Nico Hoerner, who was a sensation in his late-season call-up to the majors, leads the Cubs prospects who were named to Baseball America’sannual Top 20 Prospects lists that were released over the past week.

Every year when the the minor league season ends, Baseball America compiles a list of the Top 20 Prospects in each league. These lists are based mostly on the opinions of the many coaching staffs. This is a contrast from BA’s Team Top 30 Prospects lists, which are compiled mostly on the opinions of scouts and other front office personnel.
