Pirates In Baseball America's Top-100

A few weeks ago I broke down the Pirates throughout the years in the prospect rankings. If you haven't checked that out recently then you can click on this link and take a look at it. It's an interesting view of how the Pirates system has grown throughout the years and how much more talent is in it through the eyes who evaluate it for a living.

Anyways, I included Baseball America among the other well established outlets that put out prospect rankings but they did not have their 2014 prospect rankings yet. Well, tonight they did. They unveiled the top-50 on MLB Network and on Twitter and then threw out the rest of the top-100 after that. Here is how the Pirates stacked up:

For those that don't recognize the Twitter handles it looks like this:

10. Gregory Polanco
22. Jameson Taillon
46. Tyler Glasnow
49. Austin Meadows.

Last season the Pirates only had two in the top-50 but Polanco came in at number 51.

Rounding out the top-100 the Pirates had three others for a total of seven on the list:

64. Nick Kingham
76. Alen Hanson
81. Reese McGuire

Not bad.
