    If Bo finishes the season hitting .300-.400 in High-A, I can see him being top 15 in some lists. I think at this point, most scouts have bought into his unorthodox approach.

    AA will be interesting. The jump from A+ to AA is the hardest in all of baseball. That'll be the biggest test for Bo in the minors.

    the jump to MLB is not harder?

    Obviously the MLB is better than AA, but for prospects, AA is known as their proving ground.

    Best of the Best

    1. Braves

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...ves-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: Our preseason No. 1 still has depth as well as impact talent.

    2. White Sox

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...Sox-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: Massive farm system makeover has White Sox nipping on Braves' heels.


    Elite Farm Systems

    3. Phillies

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...ies-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: Phillies are still deep in upper-level talent but also helped by improvement from young pitchers.

    4. Padres

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...res-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: Many of Padres best prospects are in Class A and below, but depth of the farm system is notable.

    5. Astros

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...ros-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: Development of Franklin Perez, Forrest Whitley and Yordan Alvarez boosts already deep group.

    6. Rays

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...ays-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: Depth less notable here than strength of the top prospects.

    7. Yankees

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...ees-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: Even after trading to help bullpen and rotation, Yankees are still loaded.




    Near-Elite Farm Systems

    8. Brewers

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...Logo-50x50.png

    The skinny: Big league Brewers have been better than expected in '17; farm system should keep momentum going in '18.

    9. Blue Jays

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...ays-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: The system is top-heavy, but the trio of Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Bo Bichette and Anthony Alford is a great way to lead off a system.

    10. Dodgers

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...ers-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: Even after Yu Darvish deal, Dodgers have Walker Buehler, Alex Verdugo leading a strong group. L.A. has drafted very well of late.

    11. Reds

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...eds-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: Adding Nick Senzel and Hunter Greene at the top of the last two drafts has buoyed an already deep system.


    Middle of the Pack

    12. Indians

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...ans-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: Francisco Mejia/Triston McKenzie are the Indians' battery of the future.

    13. Cardinals

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...als-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: While 2017 has been a wasted year for Cards in majors, the farm system has gotten deeper and better.

    14. Pirates

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...tes-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: Graduations have thinned the system, but Mitch Keller is still a great No. 1 prospect.

    15. Rockies

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...ies-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: Rockies graduated Jeff Hoffman, German Marquez, Antonio Senzatela and Kyle Freeland, understandably dropping them in the rankings.

    16. Athletics

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...ics-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: Recent trades have helped bolster the system. If Dustin Fowler and James Kaprielian are healthy next year, the A's will climb.

    17. Mets

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...ets-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: Injuries have hurt the Mets at the big league and minor league levels.

    18. Nationals

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...als-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: The top of the Nationals' Top 10 is really impressive, but system thins out quickly.


    Bottom-Third Farm Systems

    19. Twins

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...96-150x150.png

    The skinny: Twins sold off pieces at deadline but lacked the big league talent to land impact prospects in return.

    20. Red Sox

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...Sox-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: Michael Chavis' development this year helps a trade-thinned system.

    21. Rangers

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...ers-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: Darvish trade can't fully make up for graduations/trades of past two years.

    22. Orioles

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...les-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: Austin Hays and Ryan Mountcastle's development provides some hope amidst big league struggles.

    23. Mariners

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...ers-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: Mariners have made a ton of trades, but some have hurt more than they have helped.

    24. Diamondbacks

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...cks-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: Good work by Arizona front office allowed it to land impact bat in J.D. Martinez while retaining top four prospects.

    25. Tigers

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...ers-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: With Alex Faedo and Matt Manning developing in the low minors, Tigers will likely rise in next year's farm system rankings.


    Bottom of the Barrel

    26. Angels

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...3202-90x90.png

    The skinny: After years of drought, the first green shoots of growth are poking through the topsoil, led by Jordon Adell.

    27. Giants

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...nts-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: Some Giants prospects have taken leaps forward this year, but the lack of impact talent is apparent, as is a lack of upper-level help.

    28. Cubs

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...ubs-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: Trades of Eloy Jimenez, Isaac Paredes and Jeimer Candelario leave Cubs with a very pitching-heavy Top 10.

    29. Royals

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...als-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: Royals managed to help big league club without hurting farm system much, but team lacks any Top 100 Prospects.

    30. Marlins

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...ami-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: Trades, injuries have left Marlins very thin in prospects in full-season ball.

    Midseason Top 10 farms according to MLB.com:

    1. Chicago White Sox
    2. Atlanta Braves
    3. San Diego Padres
    4. New York Yankees
    5. Tampa Bay Rays
    6. Oakland A's
    7. Philadelphia Phillies
    8. Milwaukee Brewers
    9. Houston Astros
    10. Los Angeles Dodgers

    I think we've got to be creeping up that Top 10 at this point. According to prospect points, we're #11.

    I have to agree with the Braves having the best farm. Their best prospects are up the middle guys of Acuna, Albies and Maitan. They've got ridiculous pitching depth that has a few guys in the upper minors and a bunch of high upside guys in the low minors. Pache and Waters are solid prospects in their own right.

    I don't know how the Dodgers keep finding quality players deep into the draft:

    Verdugo (2nd round)

    Calhoun (4th round)

    Bellinger (4th round)

    Ross Stripling (5th round)

    Austin Barnes (9th round)

    Joc Pederson (11th round)

    Walker Bueler and Corey Seager were 1st round picks, but even they were out of the Top 10. To say they've drafted well in recent years would be a gigantic understatement.

    I guess it helps when your front office get's paid like MLB players.

    I feel like Danny Jansen doesn't get talked about enough here. He's putting up a 124 wRC+ in AA through 200 PA, and he's got more walks than Ks. Not sure how the defense is but if he sticks at C, that's very intriguing.

    Last things I've read about him say scouts aren't sold on his defense as a catcher.

    BA doesn't even rank him in the top 10 prospects for toronto in their midseason list.

    This was 2 months ago from fangraphs Fringe 5 weekly lists when talking about Jansen and he not being included despite strong numbers:

    Damaso
    C D.Jansen (22, AA), spent his career at age appropriate levels so far, though his last two years have been savaged by injuries. Gets good marks for his gamecalling and receiving.

    MILB Career: 882pa, 10.3bb%, 12.7k%, .285babip, 117wrc+
    2017 (A+/AA): 161pa, 6.2bb%, 9.9k%, .398babip, 184wrc+

    Carson Cistulli
    Because catchers donít move gracefully down the defensive spectrum, but rather tend to plummet all the way to first base, Iíve become progressively more cautious about including them here unless their defensive reputations are beyond reproach.

    Eric Longenhagenís assessment of Jansenís catching skills ó or, perhaps, the assessment that heís relayed from scouts ó suggests to me that Jansenís defense might merit a little bit of reproach.

    I agree, though, that the offensive skills are promising, and Iím constantly willing to consider new information.
