Overall this list is good news for the Pittsburgh Pirates.  They continue to hold one of the best farm systems in Baseball and it starts at the top.  This is modest also.  The Pirates definitely have other prospects who have the potential to eventually reach this list.

The one new addition to the Pittsburgh Pirates Top 100 group is Henry Davis.  It is impressive to see him ranked at number 51 overall without playing a game.  Why this is even more intriguing is because there are questions about whether or not Davis can stick behind the plate, so this ranking really speaks to Davis’ potential with the bat.

Next. Pittsburgh Pirates sign another top pick. dark

Going into the final stretch of the minor league season it will be interesting to see how this list will change by the end of the year.  Can Gonzales and Peguero put together a strong second half and boost their stock?  Will the Pittsburgh Pirates have any players really breakout and join the list? The goal of course is to do what the team just did, have more Top 100 prospects than the previous list. Hopefully, this will be the case for the Pittsburgh Pirates.
