Pittsburgh Pirates Top Twenty Prospects

by @ 6:57 am. Filed under Uncategorized

John Sickels put out his top twenty Pirates prospects list and like the Kevin Goldstein list, Sickels gives some nice ratings to some Pirates farmhands.  Topping the list is RHP Gerrit Cole again.  This kid is a stud and it’ll be fun to see him move up the chain.  Number two is Jameson Taillon.  Given an A-, Taillon is working on his other pitches as he moves up the ladder but he should also be fun to watch.

Rounding out the top five are Josh Bell (OF), Starling Marte (OF) and Robbie Grossman (OF).  Grossman showed a lot next year but Bell is the best overall talent of the position players.
