The Chicago Cubs Players, Organizational Affiliates, Prospects + Depth Charts (MLB + MiLB)

Rizzo followed up his  short 2012 campaign, in which he hit .285 with 15 HR and 48 RBI with a lower Slash line of .233/.323/.742 - but still clubbed 23 HRs and added 80 RBI. If he maximizes his potential, you are looking at a perennial threat each year to lead the NL in HRs.  Rizzo was traded from the Padres for Andrew Cashner, and it was the 3rd time Jed Hoyer had acquired the guy in his management life.  The team signed him to a 7 YR/$41 MIL extension this year, that will see him in until at least 2019, and potentially til 2021.

Theo Epstein and the Ricketts new the job was going to be a tough one.  Replenishing the young talent in the organization, after much trepidation, will continue to be the focal point of the North Chicago franchise.

The most of the Veterans have left for prospects.  Gone are; Matt Garza, Scott Feldman, Alfonso Soriano, Carlos Marmol, David DeJesus, Ryan Dempster, Geovany Soto, Ian Stewart, Reed Johnson, Paul Maholm.

In are a bunch of young players acquired for the services of the old guys.

Players such as Pedro Strop, Jake Arrieta, Mike Olt, Corey Black, Justin Grimm and a host of other youngsters in the Minor League Level.

The Cubs also have traded for lots of International Money limits, where they have brought in further assets to the organization.

Wrigley Field is about the best all natural ballpark experience out of all of the 30 teams in the MLB - however the attendance has started to sag with the recent play of the franchise.  Wrigley Field has seen a decline in fans attended every year since 2008, down from 3.3 Million fans in 2008, to 2.65 Million people in 2013 (only good for 7th out of 15 NL Teams).

Long suffering fans in North Chicago, have waited for 105 years since their last World Series Title, and haven’t even been to the Fall Classic since 1945, in the famous “Billy Goat Series”.

This teams stewardship knows how to build a club.  While Epstein thrived under a lot of Dan Duquette player moves before he entered the fray, he did some great moves of his own over the course of his time in Boston.

The Cubs have a long way to go, but the depth of the organization is starting to turn around.

It has been a hard time for Epstein since entering the confines of Wrigley Field, however he has a track record of a decade in assembling a team.  The Ricketts family has given the 39 Year Old full reign to run the club in any way he sees fit.

It has been a hard time for Epstein since entering the confines of Wrigley Field, however he has a track record of a decade in assembling a team. The Ricketts family has given the 39 Year Old full reign to run the club in any way he sees fit.  The club has only given him records of 65 – 97 in 2012, and 66 – 96 in 2013.  But this is about rebuilding the team, so that they can compete for championships down the road.  At least the payroll has been scaled back.

Authors for this post:

You guys are all in for a treat.  Jeff Kleiner recently contacted me about a partnership merge for the website.  He has developed a site (prosportsrosters.com) that covers all organizational affiliates in the Minors for all of the Major League Baseball Clubs. 

We are going to combine efforts to bring you the best look at salaries, current 25 Man Player Rosters and Depth Charts for all 30 teams. 

Jeff is going to provide the documents in form of spreadsheets and I am going to accompany the posts with deep analysis of what the numbers tell us from my perspective. 

If you can’t wait for all of my updates (assessments for each club – in March and Aug/Sept), go and visit Jeff’s website over at http://www.prosportsrosters.com. for much more up to date info

In Speaking with Jeff, he is one of the more passionate fans I have come across towards the game of baseball.  He spends enough time in updating his MLB Facts for it to be a Full-Time Job. 

Jeff updates this page below on a daily basis.  After you click on it….Bookmark it.  There is a 3 year salary forecast and stats not listed here on this page.  Jeff updates these pages daily and these changes include any Roster moves!

Jeff Kleiner:  “I have been a sports fan since the first Baseball game I went to at Comisky Park in Chicago in 1959, when baseball for me turned from black and white to color.

I have attended or watched thousands of games, always paying attention to statistics, rosters and salaries of all professional sports.

Luckily I had the advantage of watching WGN TV and seeing hundreds of games in the 60’s. Collecting Baseball Cards and then later dealing them gave me an extra sense of the sport, both good and bad.”
