SEE ALSO: 2018 Organizational Talent Rankings
Ranking the talent in farm systems is an always-changing metric. A week ago, these rankings would have looked different with the Brewers ranking higher and the Marlins ranking lower before the Christian Yelich trade. A week from now, a trade may cause these rankings once again. For recent trends, we used previous rankings as posted in the Baseball America Prospect Handbook.
1. Atlanta Braves
Recent Trends: The Braves have long had one of the strongest farm systems in baseball, but it bottomed out not long ago. They ranked as low as 29th in 2015, but the new front office inherits a farm system that has ranked No. 1 in back-to-back seasons.
Top 100 Prospects: 8
The Skinny: The Braves still have more pitching prospects than hitting, but OF Ronald Acuna, the No. 1 prospect in baseball, 3B Austin Riley and OF Christian Pache give the team position prospects scattered around the game’s group of pitching prospects.
