2021 Midseason MLB Organization Talent Rankings
A lot has changed since we last rolled out Organization Talent Rankings before the 2021 season. There’s been another draft, a very busy trade deadline, a lot of graduations and most importantly, three months of minor league action, the first chance for many players to play in games that counted since 2019.
Our Midseason Update includes all players who are prospect eligible as of Aug. 15. Anyone who has graduated from prospect status before that point does not factor in how we lined up the teams, so Wander Franco, Jarred Kelenic and many, many others are no longer a part of these rankings.
And in part because of those graduations, we have a new No. 1 farm system—the Seattle Mariners—as well as a team at No. 2 (Baltimore Orioles) that has never ranked this high in the 38 years that Baseball America has been ranking farm systems.
See where all 30 teams rank below.

The Skinny: The Rockies have improved their talent base in the lower levels of the system, but there is little to be found above the Class A levels.More Less
