MLB Pipeline unveiled its preseason Top 100 prospects list for 2020 Saturday afternoon on the MLB Network. The Atlanta Braves are once again well represented with five prospects included in the list.
13. Cristian Pache
26. Drew Waters
37. Ian Anderson
52. Kyle Wright
70. Shea Langeliers
Cristian Pache and Drew Waters are at the head of this class and we could see both of them in Atlanta at some point in 2020. Pache has been well regarded among prospect analysts since before last season while Waters has made a huge jump on preseason lists this year.
Ian Anderson dominated Double-A but struggled a bit at Gwinnett. He dropped on this list but is another prospect who we will likely see in Atlanta at some point this season. Both he and Kyle Wright are expected to compete for the Braves’ fifth starter spot in spring training.
Atlanta’s final prospect on this list is 2019 first round pick Shea Langeliers who began last season at Rome but could move quickly in 2020.
