Once a week I will be updating on the Pittsburgh Pirate’s farm system.  I will mainly be posting their main stats from week to week.  This should allow you to have an easy and accessible page to view how the prospects are doing.  With this being said I did kick off the Minor League Season with 4 articles covering the 4 main minor league teams in the Pirate organization.  I mentioned a lot of prospects in those articles, many of whom will be on this list.  I created this list after putting together a formula that consists of a number of stats, intangibles, and watching film on them. Their stats are based on their previous season performance and their career lines.  With that stats make up the bulk of how they are rated. Through this I put the prospects in a tiered system, but for these updates it will be easier to use the traditional 1-30 rankings.

One thing to keep in mind is that the minor league schedule is only one week in.  Teams like Indy have struggled with weather and have only played in 3 games thus far.  It is a very small sample size, but I wanted to get a template out of what I will be doing on a weekly basis.  There are not many free sites out there that can provide a full-page of the top prospects in the organization with their season stats listed in one spot.  Rather than trying to remember and search each individual player we will make it easier for you.  Happy prospect season!

I may change stats around once there is a bigger/consistent sample to pull from
