The Cubs farm, circa late 2014, might be the richest farm system of the last decade. A Florida prep infielder with a plus power bat and better than average speed, shortstop Addison Russell will probably grow out of the position very soon, but he'll look quite good as a third baseman, too. No matter where he plays, he's one of the best hitting prospects in this or any system, and while he might not be quite as far along as a few of the other Chicago prospects, his ceiling is of the highest order. When he arrives, it'll be with a big, sweet thump.

News and Notes

Addison Russell has been traded to the Cubs as part of the package that netted Jeff Samardzija for Oakland. While there's still concern he might not stick as a shortstop, he nonetheless becomes one of Chicago's tip-top offensive prospects.

Addison Russell has torn his right hamstring again, though apparently in a different place than last season, and will miss 4-6 weeks, according to MLB.com. The A's shortstop prospect was having a nice spring until now.
