2016 Bowman Scouts Top 100 Cubs

Topp 100,  Top 100, Bowman Scouts Top 100...many names over the past few years, but the same insert set.

The Cubs managed to land three prospects on the top 100 list, despite all the young players that have moved on to Chicago recently.

Glyeber Torres lands on the 15th spot.  Just 19 years old, he is in his third season in the Cubs organization.  Right now he is in high A ball in Myrtle Beach.  He's off to a slow start, hitting just .223 in 27 games.

Catcher Willson Contreras was #68.  He had a very good camp in Arizona and when Miguel Montero got hurt, there was talk of bringing Contreras up.  Joe and Theo shot that down, though, not wanting to rush his development.

The Cubs #1 pick in the 2015 draft, Ian Happ, zoomed halfway up the list, to #49.  He is hitting .280 in Myrtle Beach.


  1. These prospect sets are a lot more interesting after doing the minor league tour and seeing all these guys play last year. Happ and Torres signed autographs for us in South Bend and we saw Contreras with the Smokies.

  2. I really like the design of these inserts. I'll have to pick up a copy of each at some point.
