Fangraphs released their revised version of their preseason top-100 list to include recent draftees. You can find it here. 14 Braves appear in the top 105. Here are their ranks:
Ronald Acuna – 1
Mike Soroka – 23
Kyle Wright – 24
Luiz Gohara – 26
Cristian Pache – 28
Austin Riley – 40
Ian Anderson – 41
Touki Toussaint – 51
Max Fried – 90
Joey Wentz – 92
Drew Waters – 94
Carter Stewart – 98
Brett Cumberland – 99
Kolby Allard – 105
This list is different than lists from Baseball America or Keith Law.
-Stewart, our #8 pick in this year’s draft, was the 8th-highest ranked draftee. Not the end-all, be-all, but Kiley McDaniel and Eric Longenhagen’s opinion of Stewart seems to match ours.
-It will be interesting to see where Allard comes in mid-season. With Fried struggling with blisters, those two may switch.
-This was just a revised pre-season list, so the existing player rankings isn’t exactly news, but they have some very ambitious grades on Pache, Waters, and Cumberland. McDaniel said on Twitter that they tend to value hitters over pitchers.
-We have a lot of guys on this list.
