Nine writers ranked the Braves’ prospects, and the rankings were then averaged together to get an overall ranking.
The Braves farm is not as highly ranked as it once was. Gone are the days of the Braves carrying the top farm system in baseball with prospects such as Ronald Acuña Jr., Ozzie Albies, Dansby Swanson, Austin Riley, Max Fried, Mike Soroka, Ian Anderson, and many others.
Check out the previous rankings:
As we move into the 26-21 range, we begin to see more consistency in the rankings. The bottom third of the Braves system is still a bit murky, but the 26-21 range features some more commonly known names.
As mentioned in the previous installment, the Braves system is not as deep as it once was. Across the league, the system is thought of as a middle-of-the-road farm. A system that is extremely top-heavy and thinner at the lower levels.
This of course has been due to the international sanctions the Braves faced in recent years. With those sanctions being over, the Braves could see the farm system start rising again in the coming years.
Even with the current system, there still could be solid talent coming out the 26-21 range. There are guys that could take a major jump come midseason with a strong 2022 campaign. There are also players that could fall off the top 30 list with a new draft class if they do not perform.
There is still some upside with these five guys, starting with number 26.
