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:
- Tomahawk Take Atlanta Braves Prospect Rankings 30-26
- Tomahawk Take Atlanta Braves Prospect Rankings 25-21
We move into the middle third of the Tomahawk Take prospect rankings for our Atlanta Braves! This range starts to feature guys who could make an impact in Atlanta soon or they might fall out of the rankings entirely with a bad season.
We know the Braves farm system is not as talented as it was during the height of the rebuild, but there is still plenty of intriguing names. As we approach the middle of the farm system rankings, we see a few guys that could make an impact for the big-league club soon if things break their way.
The talent in this range is real. So is the risk, but that is the case with any prospect. Middle tier guys have the ability to surprise and prove their ceiling is much higher than originally thought.
The unique thing about these five seem to be all feature a great deal of risk. Whether it be injury concerns, lack of video, or even age, these five prospects are definitely not the safest. Is any prospect really safe though?
With that being said, we should jump in starting with number 20.
