The good news for the Chicago Cubs is that most of their top prospects have been true to form to start this season with very few hiccups in the first month. The bad news, which is normally inevitable in baseball, is that some have still gotten off to some disappointing starts. As an organization, the Cubs’ top 20 prospects have performed well, but three out of their top 15 have been particularly disappointing thus far.

All prospects go through struggles at different times in their minor league careers, and the ones that shake those struggles off quickly are usually the ones that go on to have long and successful major league careers.

The three players on this list are hoping to reach that success at the big league level relatively soon, but unless they turn around their early performances, their arrivals in the big leagues could be delayed.
