By 2023, most of the Pittsburgh Pirates top prospects will be ready to see some major league action. So, what could their line up look like a few years down the road?

In a couple of years, the Pittsburgh Pirates could have a really deep line up. One that includes multiple all-stars, and even some that might get MVP consideration. Currently, the MLB roster isn’t that great, but, by 2023, the line up should be contender ready once again.

Currently, the Pittsburgh Pirates have the 6th best farm system in all of baseball according to FanGraphs. At the beginning of 2020, it was ranked as the 5th best. They have five, top 100 prospects, and one who sits just on the border of top 100. However, many more could join them depending on if they develop as planned.

Even if not every single prospect develops as planned, their farm system is so deep, that they have multiple routes to go if a prospect at a position does not pan out.

In three years, what could we expect to see the Pittsburgh Pirates line up look like? Read on to find out!
