I had this written up before @ATLBrave posted, so I'm just going to roll with it.
Both Baseball America and Baseball Prospectus came out with their Top 100 (or 101 in BP's case) Prospects Lists today. Both lists had Toronto stud Vladimir Guerrero Jr. as the #1 prospect and both lists had 8 Braves make the list. Here's the 8 in alphabetical order, with their ranking BA/BP.
RHP Ian Anderson 24/29
OF Cristian Pache 85/62
3B Austin Riley 22/30 RHP Mike Soroka 25/53
RHP Touki Toussaint 53/70
OF Drew Waters 83/65
RHP Bryse Wilson 80/60
RHP Kyle Wright 39/58
This is the third consecutive season that Atlanta has placed 8 prospects on the BA list, which is pretty amazing considering that they have graduated Acuna, Albies, Swanson, and Newcomb during that time. The Padres and the Rays tied with 9 prospects, only the second and third time a team has had 9 prospects. The only other time was the 2011 Royals, who's core went to two World Series a few years later.So the Braves, Padres, and Rays account for a little over a quarter of the top 100 prospects in baseball. Want to know who will be perpetual contenders into the next decade? Look at those teams.
The MLB Pipeline Top 100 comes out on Saturday.
