Braves Prospects Julio Teheran, Arodys Vizcaino, Randall Delgado On Baseball Prospectus Top-100

The prospect lists just keep on coming out and the latest one is courtesy of Kevin Goldstein of Baseball Prospectus. The Braves have been well-represented on just about every prospects rankings list this offseason, but Goldstein has just three players in his top-100 from the organization.

We have the rankings and a few thoughts after the jump.

Julio Teheran was ranked No. 5 overall and claimed the honor of being the highest rated right-handed pitcher on the list.

Randall Delgado came in at No. 41 overall, which is right around where I would have the 22-year old pitching prospect ranked.

Arodys Vizcaino was listed at No. 62 overall, which I found to be pretty low. I tweeted Goldstein about the ranking and he gave this explanation:

Most feel Vizcaino is capable of starting and will be able to stay healthy doing so, but Goldstein apparently does not think so. I'm inclined to disagree with him, but, hey, this is all a matter of opinions, anyway.

The notable omissions from the list are shortstop Andrelton Simmons and catcher Christian Bethancourt.
