Fangraphs has the Braves last in their updated farm system rankings

As expected with championship teams, the Braves’ farm system has lost a lot of talent, either through trades or graduation. Top prospect Michael Harris II is making a big impact on the Major League club, but consequently, the farm system takes a hit. FanGraphs has taken notice of this before the draft:

They have Atlanta at 30th, right behind the Chicago White Sox. While this may be discouraging, it is part of the reason why the Braves traded Drew Waters and other pieces for the 35th pick in the Draft. With five picks in the Top 100, look for the Braves to try to rebuild their farm system quickly and aggressively.
