The Pittsburgh Pirates have built up a deep farmsystem, but who are some prospects that could rise to top 100 lists before the end of this upcoming season.

The Pittsburgh Pirates have built up one of the best farm systems in all of baseball. Since taking over as general manager, Ben Cherington has traded many of the team’s veterans for large and worthwhile prospect packages.

Many of the prospects Cherington brought in through trade are not ranked as top 100 prospects, at least not yet. However, every year, there are a ton of players who graduate prospect status, moving the borderline ones into the top 100. Breakout seasons will also help a prospect move up in the rankings.

This year, we could see a whole lot of new faces that are part of the Pirates’ organization end the year as top 100 prospects. Today we will examine five players in the Pittsburgh Pirates farm system who could become top 100 prospects by the end of the year.
