MiLB Opening Day: How the Top 100 fared

The Minor League season is now underway and there’s no one happier than me about it. Now we can see how all those prospects in our Top 100 perform. Feel free to peruse Prospect Watch to see how everyone’s doing on your team’s Top 20 as well.

For now, though, I wanted to give a quick report on how the 44 players in the Top 100 who played on Thursday (leaving the big leaguers out of the report) did in their openers. Rain knocked several out of action. Two stars for Opening Day — one hitter, one pitcher —  are bolded.

Today (Friday), there are some pretty good pitchers taking the hill — 10 Top 100 arms:

Triple-A

No. 9 Gerrit Cole
No. 46 Chris Archer
No. 49 Kyle Gibson
No. 71 Allen Webster

Double-A

No. 60 Jesse Biddle
No. 78 Zach Lee
No. 87 Cody Buckel

Class A Advanced

No. 24 Archie Bradley
No. 34 Kyle Zimmer

Class A

No. 53 Max Fried
