New, 96 comments

Our first Atlanta Braves top prospect list is out from a major prospect guru. This first one from John Sickels, here are his top-20 Braves prospects:

  1. Jason Heyward
  2. Freddie Freeman
  3. Julio Teheran
  4. Randall Delgado
  5. Craig Kimbrel
  6. Mike Minor
  7. Christian Bethancourt
  8. J.J. Hoover
  9. Zeke Spruill
  10. David Hale
  11. Mycal Jones
  12. Brett DeVall
  13. Cory Gearrin
  14. Adam Milligan
  15. Jose Ortegano
  16. Robinson Lopez
  17. Luis Valdez
  18. Edgar Osuna
  19. Scott Diamond
  20. Dimaster Delgado

Visit his site for his commentary on each of these guys. It's a good list. A little high for Hale and Jones, I think. Good inclusion of Robinson Lopez, I think we'll be seeing a lot of him on lists this year. Notice the absence of Cody Johnson, who Sickels says he "doesn't believe in" because of the strikeouts -- a very valid fear.
