Young Minor Leaguers in the Cubs system

This is something interesting to document that doesn't deserve a real post. I was curious to see what Cubs are "young" for their level. So, what I've done is gone through each minor league system the Cubs contribute to and looked to see if any Cubs are in the Top 10. Here are the results.

The system is loaded with intriguing B- and C-level prospects that could either explode in 2012 or completely fall off the radar.
