-Jonathan Mayo released the MLB.com top 100 draft prospects last week.

On Thursday I combined the mid-season rankings from Baseball America, Keith Law, and MLB.com to get the consensus rankings.

-I added four new draft prospect trackers over the weekend, and updated the scouting reports on all of the existing trackers.

Albert Almora is one of the players that I added over the weekend. He’s also one of the rare high school players that had stats available. His regular season is over, and he finished with a .500/.579/.833 line in 48 at-bats, with two homers. His full stat breakdown can be found on his player page.


-Mike Zunino and Florida play North Florida on Tuesday.

-Deven Marrero and Arizona State resume their schedule on Friday.

Tim started Pirates Prospects in 2009 from his home in Virginia, which was 40 minutes from where Pedro Alvarez made his pro debut in Lynchburg. That year, the Lynchburg Hillcats won the Carolina League championship, and Pirates Prospects was born from Tim's reporting along the way. The site has grown over the years to include many more writers, and Tim has gone on to become a credentialed MLB reporter, producing Pirates Prospects each year, and will publish his 11th Prospect Guide this offseason. He has also served as the Pittsburgh Pirates correspondent for Baseball America since 2019. Behind the scenes, Tim is an avid music lover, and most of the money he gets paid to run this site goes to vinyl records.


Pirates Prospects has been independently owned and operated since 2009, entirely due to the support of our readers. The site is now completely free, funded entirely by user support. By supporting the site, you are supporting independent writers, one of the best Pittsburgh Pirates communities online, and our mission for the most complete Pirates coverage available.
