Brewers prospect rankings: Baseball Prospectus lists Tyrone Taylor #1

Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE

Taylor was the Brewers' second round pick in the 2012 draft.

I just got done talking about some of my misgivings regarding prospect rankings, so of course now it's time to talk some more about prospect rankings.

Baseball Prospectus has released their list of the top ten prospects in the Brewers organization, led by 2013 Wisconsin outfielder Tyrone Taylor. Most of the article is behind their paywall, but you can see the names of the top ten players and a bit on Taylor for free.

Taylor was the Brewers' second round pick in the 2012 draft, and 2013 was his first full professional season. He played 122 games for low-A Wisconsin, mostly in center field, and posted a .274/.338/.400 batting line with 33 doubles and eight home runs. He also just turned 20 on January 22, making him the team's second youngest regular.

Taylor checks in a spot ahead of pitcher Jimmy Nelson, who MLB.com chose over Taylor for a spot in their preseason top 100. The rest of BP's top five include outfielder Mitch Haniger, shortstop Orlando Arcia and pitcher Johnny Hellweg.
