New, 63 comments

No surprises in the top-10 list for the Atlanta Braves.

Daniel Shirey-US PRESSWIRE

The gold standard in prospect analysis, Baseball America, has released their top-10 list of 2013 Atlanta Braves prospects:

  1. Julio Teheran, rhp
  2. J.R. Graham, rhp
  3. Christian Bethancourt, c
  4. Sean Gilmartin, lhp
  5. Lucas Sims, rhp
  6. Mauricio Cabrera, rhp
  7. Alex Wood, lhp
  8. Evan Gattis, of/c
  9. Zeke Spruill, rhp
  10. Jose Peraza, ss

No real surprises here. Their top-10 actually comprises 9 of the 10 prospects that we have in our top-10. Talking Chop lists shortstop Nick Ahmed amongst the top-10, and does not list Spruill. Our top-10 here and here.

I still find it interesting that prospect folks are listing Bethancourt so high. I guess I soured on him this year, even though he does ooze tools.

An interesting oversight in the "Best Tools" section is the inclusion of Cory Harrilchak as having the best outfield arm. Unfortunately, Cory was released by the Braves during the year.
