DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — It must be tempting for Chicago Cubs fans to pay as much attention to Triple-A Iowa as the struggling big league club.

Iowa's lineup is a daily reminder that Chicago's future might be as bright as any team in baseball.

The recent promotion of Cuban outfielder Jorge Soler, who is ranked 54th on's list of the top 100 prospects in baseball, has given the I-Cubs a lineup that's the envy of all of baseball.

Iowa has a heart of the order that's as promising as any Triple-A team in recent memory, with Soler fifth behind middle infielder Javier Baez (ranked No. 6 by and third baseman Kris Bryant (No. 4).
