Long gone are the days of a top-ranked farm system. A lot of graduations in recent years, as well as international limitations, have seen the system steadily drop.

Winning a championship with a young core makes this less of an issue. With the international restrictions now up, the organization can begin rebuilding the lower level of the minors again.

While the system may be thinner than in years past, guys like Harris, Strider, Waters, and others still show plenty of potential. They could benefit the team in the upcoming seasons.

There are also some guys like Freddy Tarnok, AJ Smith-Shawver, Makhi Backstrom, and others that have the potential to jump up rankings with strong 2022 seasons.
