07:21 AM ET 10.30 | Only two MLB teams remain -- and, soon, their seasons will be over, too -- but franchises across North America have an eye on the Arizona Fall League. This year's crop of talent is especially deep, including 21 players that ranked among our end-of-season top 100 prospects. ... Making stops at three levels after signing with the Cubs, [Kris Bryant], the No. 2 overall selection in the 2013 draft, was one of the top hitters in the minor leagues over the final month of the season at High-A Daytona, batting .333/.387/.719 with five home runs and 14 RBI in 16 games. This fall, the 21-year-old third baseman has been a one-man wrecking crew with five home runs (12 extra-base hits) and 16 RBI through his first 11 games. Suffice it to say that he's making an early run at the league's MVP award.

It would be great for The Cubs if he panned out!

Does Theo have some gas in the minor league tank? Would not be surprising.

He is less than average defensively and last two years has hit in the .240s. Some times has lapses in concentration.
