Earlier this month, at my personal blog Braves Farm, I updated my Braves Top 30 prospect list to reflect the first-half of the 2021 season. Then, I simply released the updated rankings. But today I will post them here, along with excerpts for each prospect.
However, first things first: There’s a list of eight former Top 30 prospects that are no longer on my list — either because they were traded, or because their performance simply declined since the summer rankings. Today I’ll kick off the release by covering those eight players, and from there I’ll begin posting my new midseason list in three installments.
