Keith Law released his top 100 prospect list today(subscription required) and the Pittsburgh Pirates have five players on the list. Led by Tyler Glasnow in the 13th spot, he also has Austin Meadows at #32, Jameson Taillon at #36, Josh Bell ranked 60th overall and Alen Hanson takes the 89th spot. Insiders can see the profiles for the top 50 prospects here, and prospects 51-100 here.
The Pirates have more representatives than any other team in the NL Central. The Cubs have four, and so do the Cardinals, although their top prospect came in at #62. The Reds have two players on the list and the Brewers have just one.
This is the second time recently that Austin Meadows has been listed second for Pirates players. John Sickels posted his top 20 last Friday and also had Meadows ahead of Taillon. Law says that Meadows has a chance to be a star, as long as his power develops like it should.
Law posted his rankings of each farm system in baseball yesterday and had the Pirates ranked seventh overall.
You can see Law’s list from 2014 here, where he had Gregory Polanco ranked 13th, same place as Glasnow this year. Law has not ranked Reese McGuire on either list and Nick Kingham fell off his latest list and wasn’t on the 2013 list either.
