Pirates Farm System Ranked Sixth Best

By Jason Shetler

Jim Callis of MLB.com released his updated Top 10 farm system rankings, and has the Pirates ranked as the sixth best system in baseball.

The Pirates currently have five prospects in MLB.com’s Top 100 with Tyler Glasnow, Austin Meadows, Josh Bell, Jameson Taillon and Alen Hanson. In addition to Meadows, the outfield depth still remains strong with the likes of Harold Ramirez, Barrett Barnes and Willy Garcia. Callis gave Reese McGuire some high praise, as he considers McGuire one of the best catchers in the minors right now.
