Prospect rankings: The Top 20
Over the past few weeks, MLB.com has been rolling out various prospect lists in advance of the start of another season. First came specific position rankings, which were dotted with Cardinals Minor Leaguers. Then came the overall Top 100; the Cards placed six players in that top group, including Oscar Taveras at the No. 3 spot.
On Wednesday, the Cardinals’ Top 20 list was announced. It comes as no surprise that Taveras sits at the top. But what’s particularly striking is the depth the Cardinals tout in their system. The organization has several potential high-impact prospects and are loaded with young pitching.
Eleven of the organization’s Top 15 prospects are pitchers, including three of the first four. The Cardinals also had four member of their 2012 Draft class dent this Top 20 list.
