It is officially prospect season as many outlets continue to roll out their preseason top prospect lists ahead of the start of spring training. Baseball Prospectus dropped its Top 101 list Thursday morning and the Atlanta Braves are well represented with five prospects making the cut including three in the Top 40.

No. 5 - Ian Anderson RHP
No. 18 - Cristian Pache OF
No. 40 - Drew Waters OF
No. 62 - Kyle Muller - LHP
No. 81 - Shea Langeliers - C

Anderson is the big mover here jumping from No. 38 last season into the Top 5. He Pache and Waters are virtual locks for everyone’s Top 100 list. Kyle Muller and Shea Langeliers round out the Braves entries here and both received good reviews for their work at the alternate training site during 2020. Muller was added to the 40-man roster this offseason and could be in line to make his debut at some point in 2021. Langeliers may be a little further away, but it will be interesting to see if the Braves get aggressive with his placement in the minors this season.
