MLB Pipeline updated their top 100 prospects list on Wednesday morning. The new list includes 2022 draft picks for the first time.
The Pittsburgh Pirates are led on the list by catcher Henry Davis, who ranks 20th overall. He is followed by Termarr Johnson in the 30th spot. Those two players are the first round picks of the Pirates in the last two years, with Davis taken first overall last year, and Johnson taken fourth overall this year.
Quinn Priester ranks third among Pirates and gives them three players among the top 50 prospects in the game. He ranks 47th in today’s update. Liover Peguero is fourth in the system and ranks 65th overall in baseball. Nick Gonzales just barely made it onto the list, getting ranked 99th overall. Including Priester and Gonzales, the Pirates have each of their last four (2019-22) top draft picks among top 100 prospects.
These ratings are much more favorable for the Pirates than the recent update from Baseball America, which had four Pirates on their list, starting with Johnson in the 46th spot. He was followed by Priester (69), Peguero (82) and Davis (86).
