Cleveland Guardians have seven prospects on new Baseball America top 100 list
The Cleveland Guardians, by most accounts, maintain one of the most loaded farm systems in all of baseball. Whether or not that translates to major-league success is another thing entirely, but it's never a bad position to be in.
That being said, the organization has seven prospects in the updated top 100 list from Baseball America. Those players include pitcher Daniel Espino (#19), pitcher Gavin Williams (#20), catcher Bo Naylor (#68), outfielder George Valera (#72), shortstop Brayan Rocchio (#77), pitcher Logan Allen (#85), and pitcher Tanner Bibee (#86).
Only the Baltimore Orioles have more players on the list with eight.
Many of the aforementioned names have now become familiar for many Guardians fans, though Bibee might be a bit more unknown - though that is likely going to change very soon. The 23-year-old former fifth-round pick is quickly rising through the ranks, ending his 2022 season in Akron where he had an incredible 1.83 ERA in 13 starts, striking out 81 batters in 73 2/3 innings. He'll likely find his way to Triple-A Columbus at some point this season, and from there, the call-up to Cleveland won't be far behind.
