Baseball Prospectus released their top 101 today. For comparison with the upcoming MLB Pipeline list, here’s the BP list:
11. Tyler Glasnow
22. Austin Meadows
49. Josh Bell
51. Jameson Taillon
76. Reese McGuire
80. Harold Ramirez
This article will be updated as the Pirates on the list are announced.
9:05 PM: Reese McGuire ranked #98, the only Pirate in the 76-100 range. Jameson Taillon ranked 54th, giving the Pirates two in the 51-100 range.
Josh Bell came in 49th, same spot as the BP list. That means that the Pirates will have five players on the list as it’s highly unlikely anyone else except Austin Meadows and Tyler Glasnow will be in the top 40.
9:25 PM: Austin Meadows is #20, so this list has a lot of similarities with BP earlier. Between Meadows, Taillon and Bell, they are a total of five spots apart. Glasnow will probably be very close to #11 as well.
9:35 PM: The final tally is in and the Pirates have five players:
