A fresh crop of minor league prospects, some of which have already made their major league debut, will have an impact on the Chicago Cubs' 2015 season. These five players appear ready to contribute right away; here's what to expect from each of them.

.278 BA
14 HRs
71 RBI
29 SB

Arismendy Alcantara has already proven to be versatile, which is an automatic plus from a young player. His power upside makes him a borderline elite prospect, and he should be a solid major leaguer for years to come.

Kyle Hendricks has been the Cubs' most impressive pitching prospect by far this season, and if he can sustain that success, he will find himself in the starting rotation next season. He has all the makings of a very good No. 3 starter in the majors.

Jorge Soler has raw power similar to recently called up Javier Baez and has a better approach at the plate. He should get a taste of the big leagues this September and he will be ready to make a big impact next season.

Javier Baez is already exciting fans with his hitting display, but will strikeout with the best of them. He seems destined to be a star in the majors, but only if he can learn a more patient approach at the plate.

Kris Bryant is the most exciting of all the Cubs' prospects. He's the top prospect in all of baseball for a reason, and there's no reason to expect severe growing pains in his first major league season.
