Braves: Which prospects landed on MLB’s Top 100 list?

Braves Drew Waters

MLB Pipeline posted their post-draft prospect list update, and there has been some substantial movement for the Braves. I broke down the new Braves Top 30 earlier today, so be sure to check that out for the organization’s personal Top 30 ranked by MLB. Four guys made MLB’s Top 100 for the Braves, and I’m sure you have a good guess as to who they are.


#40 OF Cristian Pache (Previously: 12)

Even after a slow start to the season and being nagged by injuries, scouts are still high on Cristian Pache. I am as well, and he has been red hot for Gwinnett over the past few weeks. In August, Pache is slashing .348/.412/.630/1.042 with four doubles, three home runs, nine runs batted in, five walks, and two stolen bases. Pache heating up is a breath of fresh air, but staying consistent is far more important as he continues developing and attempting to be a part of the Opening Day roster in 2022.


#75 C Shea Langeliers (Previously: 73)

I think Shea Langeliers should be a LOT higher, but I’m admittedly a bit biased. However, there is no denying that Langeliers will lock down any run game, and he has been mashing the cover off of the baseball. In Mississippi, Atlanta’s first pick in the 2019 draft has a 16-game on base streak, and over that span, he has hit .367 with five doubles, five home runs, ten runs batted in, 17 walks, and 17 runs scored. Combine that with the fact that he has thrown out 46% of would-be base stealers in his career, and I think he has the potential to be a top-five catcher in all of baseball.


#86 OF Drew Waters (Previously: 35)

Strikeouts are still a concern for Waters, but he can use all five of his tools to impact the game in several ways. In one game, Waters went 0-4 with four strikeouts. However, he had a sacrifice fly and made an incredible diving play to save a run. So, even though he wore the golden sombrero, Waters still produced a run and took away a run. Waters is slashing .250/.350/.407/.757, so he needs to work on more consistent contact. However, he has 18 doubles, a triple, eight home runs, 28 runs batted in, and 20 stolen bases. His potential is sky-high, and I think he belongs on this list.


#98 OF Michael Harris (Previously: NR)

I’m happy to see Michael Harris ranked inside the Top 100, and even though he hasn’t been as good in 2021 as he was in 2019, I see a future superstar when Harris is on the field. Another true five-tool guy, the Dekalb native, is slashing .302/.352/.445/.797 in Rome with 19 doubles, three triples, six home runs, 53 runs batted in, and 21 stolen bases. After a down-ish July for his standards, Harris has an .889 OPS in August. I think he’s going to be Atlanta’s top prospect sooner rather than later.
