Led by baseball's top prospect, Jurickson Profar, the Texas Rangers' farm system ranks among the best in the sport.

Due to the amount of trades this offseason involving consensus top prospects, the overall farm system ranking was in need of a major overhaul.

After dealing star-caliber major leaguers for high-end prospects, organizations such as the Miami Marlins, New York Mets and Tampa Bay Rays have seen a jump in the rankings. Meanwhile, the teams on the opposite end of those trades, namely the Toronto Blue Jays and Kansas City Royals, have plummeted.

To properly rank each system, I employed a value system that awards specific points for a team’s quantity of top-100 prospects. In this scenario, a top-25 prospect is worth three points and top-50 worth two, while any prospect who ranks in the top-50-100 returns one point.

I then assigned a value, ranging from one to three points, to each organization based on the overall quantity and quality of their farm system.

For tie-breaking scenarios, I favored the organization with more top-50 prospects.

Here’s a look at Prospect Pipeline’s farm system rankings headed into spring training.
