On Wednesday morning, Fangraphs released their list of the top 100 prospects in baseball, which actually ended up being a top 133 prospects due to similar ratings at the end of the list. The Pittsburgh Pirates have just four players in the top 100, but another four were listed as players just outside the top 100, falling between 105-125. Here’s the complete list. Full article with reports is linked up top.

We will put together a list to average out all of the rankings from the various and post it tomorrow morning.
Keith Law put out his list of top 20 Pirates prospects for subscribers of the Athletic on Wednesday morning. Since it is a subscription article, I won’t give away too much, but I will say that after putting just two Pirates in his top 100 list, Law placed newly-acquired outfielder Hudson Head on his “Just Missed” list and placed him as the third best prospect in the system. Besides going 20 deep on his list, he also has another six players of note. A lot of recent trade acquisitions are listed here.
