Updated Top 30 Pirates Prospects List from MLB Pipeline

Published:

MLB Pipeline updated their list of the top 30 Pittsburgh Pirates prospects on Wednesday morning.

We already knew the top four from this list in order, as Pipeline had Termarr Johnson, Endy Rodriguez, Henry Davis and Quinn Priester all among the top 60 prospects in baseball. The rest of the top ten in order is: Nick Gonzales, Liover Peguero, Bubba Chandler, Luis Ortiz, Mike Burrows and Anthony Solometo.

You can check the rest of the list in the link above (be sure the year up top says 2023). As for some rankings of note:

New international signing Jun-Seok Shim ranks 26th for Pipeline. He’s one spot ahead of Shalin Polanco, the top signing from two international classes ago, and three spots ahead of Yordany De Los Santos, the top signing from the previous international class.

Besides Johnson, other 2022 draft picks ranked are: Thomas Harrington (12th), Hunter Barco (15th) and Michael Kennedy (21st).

The breakdown of the top 30 includes 17 draft picks, seven international signings and six players acquired via trades.

It’s interesting to me that Pipeline has Malcom Nunez 16th, Matt Gorski 17th and Jared Triolo 17th, after the Pirates protected Triolo from the Rule 5 draft, but left Nunez and Gorski available.

John started working at Pirates Prospects in 2009, but his connection to the Pittsburgh Pirates started exactly 100 years earlier when Dots Miller debuted for the 1909 World Series champions. John was born in Kearny, NJ, two blocks from the house where Dots Miller grew up. From that hometown hero connection came a love of Pirates history, as well as the sport of baseball. When he didn't make it as a lefty pitcher with an 80+ MPH fastball and a slider that needed work, John turned to covering the game, eventually focusing in on the prospects side, where his interest was pushed by the big league team being below .500 for so long. John has covered the minors in some form since the 2002 season, and leads the draft and international coverage on Pirates Prospects. He writes daily on Pittsburgh Baseball History, when he's not covering the entire system daily throughout the entire year on Pirates Prospects.
