MLB: Spring Training-Atlanta Braves at Toronto Blue Jays Butch Dill-USA TODAY Sports

It is prospects day here at Talking Chop! We were already treated this morning with the revealing of Baseball Prospectus’ Top 101 prospects list. Now Baseball America has dropped its own Top 100 and the Atlanta Braves are well represented once again with eight prospects including four in the Top 50. Here is a look at the list.

No. 22 - Austin Riley - 3B
No. 24 - Ian Anderson - RHP
No. 25 - Mike Soroka - RHP
No. 39 - Kyle Wright - RHP
No. 53 - Touki Toussaint - RHP
No. 80 - Bryse Wilson - RHP
No. 83 - Drew Waters - OF
No. 85 - Cristian Pache - OF

Another good looking list. Riley, Anderson, Soroka all land inside the Top 25 with Wright giving them four in the Top 50. Baseball America is a bit more bullish on Touki Toussaint who checks in at No. 53.

It is always important to remember that lists like this are subjective and will be different as there is no uniform standard that must be followed. It is nice to see differentiating opinions on prospects as a means to get a more complete picture for their strengths and weaknesses.
