We’re number two! We’re number two!

MLB: New York Mets at Atlanta Braves Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

MLBPipeline has released its midseason farm system rankings and the Braves have a strong entry for this contest. They were just edged out by the Padres, despite having more Top 100 prospects by a total of nine to eight. From MLBPipeline:

Despite graduating superstars-in-the-making Ronald Acuna and Ozzie Albies to Atlanta in the last year, the Braves still lead all teams with nine Top 100 Prospects. The strength of their system is pitching, much of it acquired via first-round picks (Soroka, Wright, Anderson, Allard) and extending well past their Top 100 arms to LHPs Joey Wentz and Kyle Muller plus RHP Bryse Wilson, among others.

The Braves top 100:

RHP Mike Soroka (No. 15),

RHP Kyle Wright (No. 24),

RHP Ian Anderson (No. 39)

3B Austin Riley (No. 43)

OF Cristian Pache (No. 57)

LHP Luiz Gohara (No. 61)

RHP Touki Toussaint (No. 76)

LHP Kolby Allard (No. 91)

OF Drew Waters (No. 99)

The farm system was able to survive the graduations of Albies and Acuña and the trade deadline to land in the No. 2 spot. Luckily for us, they have to leave the nest sometime.
