MLB Pipeline rolled out their 2021 preseason Top 100 Prospect List on Twitter Thursday night and the Atlanta Braves are well represented again with four prospects including three in the Top 35.

Cristian Pache - No. 12
Ian Anderson - No. 18
Drew Waters - No. 35
Shea Langeliers - No. 73

No real surprises as Cristian Pache, Ian Anderson and Drew Waters have been a consensus on most lists. Anderson is slated to open the 2021 season in the Braves’ rotation while Pache could be in centerfield on Opening Day. We may have to wait a little bit longer for Drew Waters as he is likely to open the season at Gwinnett, but he could be a factor at some point this season and if not then certainly by 2022.

Shea Langeliers is one of Atlanta’s most intriguing prospects and will be interesting to see where they start him out in 2021. He spent the end of 2019 at Rome and then came to spring training in 2020 and spent the entire season working at the alternate site. His defensive tools are off the charts, but he has reportedly made strides at the plate as well.
