2020 Chicago Cubs Instructional League Roster

The Cubs invited 53 players to their instructional league, but a lot of the team's top prospects are missing. That's not counting their Nos. 1 and 3 prospects—lefty Brailyn Marquez and catcher Miguel Amaya—who are on the 40-man roster. Brennen Davis, their No. 2 prospect, is also not on the roster.

Beyond that trio, some of the system's best pitching prospects, including righthanders Kohl Franklin, Chris Clarke, Ryan Jensen and Riley Thompson are not on the roster. Sources with the Cubs indicate that some of the organization's pitchers accumulated their required innings through a virtual training program.

Four of the Cubs' five 2020 draft picks are here, too. The lone exception is lefty reliever Burl Carraway.

The group also includes righthander Jerrick Suiter, who a pitcher in college at Texas Christian before spending the bulk of his career as a hitter in the Pirates organization. Suiter, 27, pitched 1.2 innings for Altoona in 2019, so moving back to the mound could give him second life as a prospect.
