Baseball America released its list of the top prospects in the Cubs organization on Monday and shortstop Aramis Ademan was ranked as the No. 1 prospect in the farm system.

"The Cubs have binged on drafting and signing pitchers in recent years—they spent a pair of 2017 first-round picks on lefthander Brendon Little and righthander Alex Lange—thus turning what had long been an organizational weakness into the biggest strength of a thin system," Baseball America said. "The majority of those pitchers are still years away from Chicago, however. And some of the most talented pitchers have yet to log a full season of work in the minors."

Seven of the top high-ceiling prospects are pitchers (six righties).

The Top 10 Cubs prospects

1. Aramis Ademan, SS
2. Adbert Alzolay, RHP
3. Jose Albertos, RHP
4. Victor Caratini, C
5. Alex Lange, RHP
6. Oscar De La Cruz, RHP
7. Brendon Little, LHP
8. Thomas Hatch, RHP
9. Jen-Ho Tseng, RHP
10. Nelson Velazquez, OF

The Cubs high-end prospects have been gutted lately with the departure of Gleyton Torres, Eloy Jimenez, Isaac Paredes, Jeimer Candelario, and talented positional players. However, it appears in a year or two, a few of these pitchers will be coming down the pipeline for the North Siders.
