Baseball America released its top 100 prospects list today. Two Pirates made the cut.

8. PEDRO ALVAREZ 3B, PIRATES
Best Tool: Power.
BA Grade: 80.
Opening Day Age: 23
ETA: Mid-2010

79. TONY SANCHEZ C, PIRATES
Best Tool: Defense.
BA Grade: 70.
Opening Day Age: 21
ETA: Mid-2011

Project Prospect also released a top 100 list today. The Pirates fared a little better on this list, with four players.

12. Pedro Alvarez – 3B – Awesome power hitter; probably doesn’t have the agility for 3B; will K often

42. Tony Sanchez – C – Nearly a lock to stick at C; hit for power, walked & didn’t K; 4th overall pick (’09)

69. Chase D’Arnaud – SS – Not an electric talent, but gets more and more impressive every time you see him

93. Jose Tabata – RF/CF – Elite contact/line-drive hitter; impatient & lacks power; may be older than listed
