The Arizona Diamondbacks have one of the deepest farm systems in all of baseball, filled with talent at almost every stop along the way from the Missoula Osprey to the Reno Aces. And according to ESPN's Keith Law, Arizona is sporting three of the top 25 prospects in all of the minors at the moment, led by the talented right hander Trevor Bauer.
Make the jump for more.
Bauer sits No. 8 on Law's current list, who has blazed his way to Triple-A Reno in just 17 total starts in the minors. He was roughed up a bit on Wednesday but I saw his 11 strikeout performance in Reno last week with my own eyes, and the kid looks just about ready in my opinion. As for Law, he made it real simple with his commentary on Bauer:
Two more young pitchers joined Bauer in the top-25 with right-hander Archie Bradley sitting in the No. 12 spot while left hander Tyler Skaggs in right behind him at No. 13. Bradley is currently with Low Class-A South Bend, while Skaggs is with Double-A Mobile. Here is Law's take on the both of them.
[Bradley is] doing everything you'd expect of him given his age and experience, but not on the fast track of [Dylan] Bundy, his former Oklahoma prep rival...Skaggs is closer to the majors than Bradley but has a touch less upside; you can't go wrong choosing either arm. I would have to think Skaggs is next in line for a call after Bauer, and his command and control are actually ahead of Bauer's right now.
