2023 MLB Farm System Rankings

1. Baltimore Orioles

Losing a lot will help put any team at the top of the farm system rankings. Six of their top ten prospects will be on the major league club, potentially pushing Baltimore into the playoffs.

2. Los Angeles Dodgers

The Dodgers spend a ton of money to bring in top-tier players. But they also spend money to help develop their farm system.

The Dodgers know how to win.

3. Arizona Diamondbacks

Arizona is on the brink of being a very competitive team for a long time. As long as Arizona holds on to their top prospects, the Diamondbacks have a ton of game-changing talent nearly ready for the MLB.

4. Cleveland Guardians

The Guardians have always dominated the pitching market. But Cleveland is earning some buzz for some of their hitting in the minors. That's going to take them far in the MLB if those prospects develop.

5. Cincinnati Reds

6 Tampa Bay Rays

The Rays are known for being extremely good at developing young talent. The Rays are usually one of the younger and least-expensive teams in the MLB and make the playoffs almost every year.

7. Texas Rangers

8. Pittsburgh Pirates

One day, the Pirates will be an elite baseball team. The more they lose, the more top prospects they'll add to the big league club.

9. Chicago Cubs

10. St. Louis Cardinals

11. Boston Red Sox

12. New York Yankees

New York has a ton of top prospects that they'll probably end up trading away at the trade deadline to potentially win a World Series. I wouldn't blame them.

13. New York Mets

The Mets didn't make any major moves last trade deadline and insisted that they're looking to really develop their farm system.

14. Colorado Rockies

The Rockies always underperform with their big-name prospects. Colorado has some intriguing prospects regarding their pitching depth, but it's too hard to pitch in Colorado.

15. Washington Nationals

16. Milwaukee Brewers

The Brewers lack starting pitching depth and pissed off Corbin Burnes.

17. Minnesota Twins

18. San Francisco Giants

The Giants missed out on a lot of free agents this winter. Instead, they're going to have to develop their top prospects. That should be on the top of their priority list.

Kyle Harrison and Marco Luciano are two premier prospects that will be difference-makers in the MLB.

19. Miami Marlins

20. Seattle Mariners

21. Toronto Blue Jays

22. Oakland Athletics

23. Detroit Tigers

The Tigers used to have a great farm system. But those guys are now in the big leagues and underperforming. You have to wonder if this new leadership in the Tigers organization will help push these prospects to new heights.

24. Kansas City Royals

The Royals have a lot of pitching prospects. But honestly, to win many games, you need positional talent and depth. Kansas City lacks that. Starters can only take you so far.

25. Los Angeles Angels

26. Chicago White Sox

27. Houston Astros

28. Philadelphia Phillies

Most of the top prospects for the Phillies are low-minor league players. It's a wait-and-see game for the Phillies. But it'll take time for those premier prospects to be noticed. We'll see if they even pan out.

29. San Diego Padres

San Diego has always been good at developing their system. But they've traded much of their talent away while trying to put together a contending team.

Like Atlanta, San Diego is never worried about parting with a prospect for the right player.

30. Atlanta Braves

The Atlanta Braves are in full win-now mode. They've traded some of their top prospects away trying to win these last couple of seasons.

Atlanta won a World Series the year before last season. They've also locked up many of their young superstars on long-term deals.
