ORGANIZATION TALENT RANKINGS

Each year since 1984 Baseball America has ranked the farm systems of all major league organizations.

This year’s edition of the Organization Talent Rankings shuffles the order at the top and welcomes rising systems in Seattle, Miami and Arizona into the top 10.

Most of the categories are self-explanatory. Exceptions are noted here. The Last five displays teams’ average standing from 2015 to 2019, and that is the period from which Recent graduates are curated.

1. TAMPA BAY RAYS

Last year rank: No. 2. Last five: 10.

Top 100 Prospects (8): SS Wander Franco (1), LHP Brendan McKay (14), 2B Vidal Brujan (51), RHP Shane Baz (71), RHP Brent Honeywell (80), LHP Shane McClanahan (83), 2B Xavier Edwards (85), RHP Joe Ryan (98)

Recent graduates: LHP Blake Snell, SS Willy Adames, 2B Brandon Lowe

The Rays have produced a steady stream of productive big leaguers thanks to solid drafting, player development and excellent pro scouting for trades.

Last year rank: No. 1. Last five: 10.

LHP MacKenzie Gore (6), RHP Luis Patiño (18), SS CJ Abrams (22), OF Taylor Trammell (73), C Luis Campusano (79), LHP Adrian Morejon (89)
