Jonathan Mayo of MLB.com has released his list of the top ten right handed pitching prospects in baseball, and two Pittsburgh Pirates made the list. Jameson Taillon and Gerrit Cole both ended up in the rankings, with Taillon finishing in third and Cole finishing sixth. The Pirates were one of two teams with two pitchers on the list. Arizona had Trevor Bauer (4th) and Archie Bradley (9th). Last year the Pirates only had Taillon on the list, with the right hander ranking sixth overall.
