The top 125 Atlanta Braves prospects have been listed. Now we review the make up of the list and previous lists.

In October of 2015, I put together my first Atlanta Braves top 100 prospect list. At the time, it was an incredibly challenging undertaking to get the information required to put together a list that deep, even with the Atlanta Braves farm system on its way up already.

This past week, I released my fourth Atlanta Braves list. This season, the list expanded to 125, after I had so much information from various contacts that it was hard to put down the pen after 100!

We’re going to look deeper into the makeup of the 2018 list in this post, and then review those past top 100 lists. In the reviews, we will use the final update on the list for that season.

Before we break them down, here are the lists from this week:
Monday – 101-125
Tuesday – 76-100
Wednesday – 51-75
Thursday – 26-50
Friday – 1-25
