Triantos and Davis hit well too so it's an exaggeration, but stuff like Canario and Marquez in the top 10 and higher than Kilian is revealing.

I'm assuming that would be Morel the Elder.

It just sank in that Cristian Hernandez did not make BP’s top 10. Props, part because I agree and part because it’s nice to see some variety on this offseason’s lists. It just doesn’t make sense for a DSL prospect who didn’t dominate the league offensively like Julio Rodriguez did

Pretty wild that 8 of those 10 weren't on the team 13 months ago.

Good list CubsWin. This is pretty close to how I have it (I think) in my mind. I would probably push Burl Carraway lower and some scouts think he never develops even average or slightly-below average command...

Overall, the list is really good and you can argue it a bunch of different ways after Brennen Davis honestly.

Definitely. After Brennen, you can come up with sound reasoning for just about any order for the rest of the top ten. After that it gets even more arbitrary for the order of ranking. That's why I like the tiering system at Prospects1500. So many of the Cubs prospects right now are so young, that by mid-season, the order could be quite different. Kohl Franklin could be much higher. Cristian Hernandez could be much lower. Jordan Nwogu could skyrocket. Nelson Velazquez could fall.

Caissie, Triantos, Kilian and Wicks seem to have to highest floors. PCA has a decent floor, too. Alcantara, Preciado, Hernandez, Herz and Marquez have ridiculous ceilings with varying likelihoods of reaching them. It's a very dynamic system right now.
