Atlanta Braves: Top prospects report

Atlanta set a single-team record with nine players on my top 100 this year. I don't think any organization had ever placed more than seven on the master ranking since I started these in 2008. The rebuilding process that started when John Coppolella took over as GM has seen Atlanta make numerous trades for all manner of prospects, from highly ranked guys like Dansby Swanson to out-of-favor talents like Luiz Gohara. The team has also leaned heavily toward taking high school arms in the past few drafts, and made a big splurge in the 2016 international market.
