MLB Pipeline Places Four Pirates Among Their Top 100 Prospects

MLB Pipeline will release their top 100 prospects tonight at 8 PM EST on MLB Network. I’ll update this article as any Pittsburgh Pirates make the list.

For comparison sake, we just had two top 100/101 lists released earlier this week. Baseball America had the following Pirates in their top 100.

26. Mitch Keller

49. Ke’Bryan Hayes

79. Oneil Cruz

Baseball Prospectus was a little more Pirate-friendly, placing five of them in their top 101.

18. Keller

55. Hayes

82. Travis Swaggerty

91. Cruz

97. Calvin Mitchell

I’ll post Pipeline’s as they are announced live tonight.

UPDATE: Pirates will have four players in the top 100, but the spot for Mitch Keller is still TBD (now updated). Here’s the rest:

19. Mitch Keller

46. Ke’Bryan Hayes

87. Travis Swaggerty

96. Oneil Cruz

The Pirates are averaging four players per top 100, led by Mitch Keller, who has an average placement of 21st overall. Hayes is ranked between 46th and 55th, with an average spot of 50th. Oneil Cruz made all three lists as well, averaging 89th overall.
