Colorado Rockies: Eight of the Rockies’ top nine prospects are hitters, and there are some enticing high-end talents among them in AFL Offensive Player of the Year Zac Veen and exceptional shortstop Ezequiel Tovar.
Los Angeles Dodgers: The Dodgers, boast seven Top 100 prospects, most of any organization, and six of the seven may help the club next year. The rich could get richer.
Miami Marlins: Eury Pérez already looks like the truth after spending his entire age-19 season at Double-A. The 6-foot-8 right-hander is expected to work out with unanimous Cy Young winner Sandy Alcantara this offseason.
Milwaukee Brewers: Brewers fans got a look at outfielders Garrett Mitchell and Esteury Ruiz last season, and Top 100 prospects Jackson Chourio, Sal Frelick and Joey Wiemer all play on the grass too. As loaded as the Arizona outfielder group is, Milwaukee’s might be just as deep.
New York Mets: Offensive production from the catching position was far from a strength for the Mets in 2022, but No. 1 overall prospect Francisco Álvarez could change that with his plus-plus raw power if/when he arrives for good early next year.
Philadelphia Phillies: Andrew Painter (1.56 ERA, 155 K in 103 2/3 IP) was as dominant as any pitcher at any level in his first full season and gives Phillies fans the future ace of their dreams.
Pittsburgh Pirates: The ever-rebuilding Bucs needed to take a big swing at No. 4 overall in July and got to take one when arguably the best overall prep hitter in the class, Termarr Johnson, was still available.
San Diego Padres: San Diego’s blockbuster move for Juan Soto decimated the system, but it still has a big talent in 19-year-old shortstop Jackson Merrill, who looked well-rounded when healthy in his first full season.
San Francisco Giants: Who is Vaun Brown anyways? Giants fans found out when the 2021 10th-rounder broke out with a .346/.437/.623 line, 23 homers and 44 steals in 103 games across three levels in his first full season.
St. Louis Cardinals: The 2020 Draft was shortened to five rounds, and the Cards still came away with current Top 100 prospects Jordan Walker, Masyn Winn, Alec Burleson and Tink Hence. A master class in drafting.
Washington Nationals: Say what you will about the Soto deal, but the Nationals’ system is certainly deeper and more dynamic with the additions of prospects Robert Hassell III, James Wood and Jarlin Susana. Elijah Green’s Draft selection added another potential superstar.
