Pirates Have Five in the FanGraphs Top 100 Prospect List

Marc Hulet of FanGraphs has released his top 100 list, with five Pittsburgh Pirates prospects making the cut. The five players are the usual suspects that have been on every other top prospect list that has been announced so far.

Coming in at number six was Gerrit Cole. Only one pitcher was ahead of Cole, and that was Dylan Bundy, who came in at number four.

Jameson Taillon came in at number 14. Hulet singled him out, noting that he was the first player on the list who doesn’t get enough attention.

Alen Hanson was the next prospect, ranked at number 33. Gregory Polanco followed at number 60, and Luis Heredia was ranked number 62.
