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.

Tim, has the Pirate Annual been printed and shipped yet?


Sorry Tim, I don’t know how I missed it because I read the article about Irwin.
I bought the combo for my Brother and everytime he calls me he asks about where it is.


We hear a lot about Heredia, but we don’t hear much about Glasnow and he might be a better talent than Heredia. It seems like the people that put top lists together are moving the same deck chairs around. The Pirates draft a lot of players with frames that can change a lot in a couple of years, but they get labels attached to them and sometimes those labels might put a guy as a 4th or 5th starter in the majors, but he may be developing and that does not seem to be taken into consideration at times.
