Baseball America Places Jameson Taillon Atop Pirates Prospect List

Following the Pirates' addition of top young arms Jameson Taillon, Stetson Allie and Luis Heredia, Jim Callis of Baseball America names his top 10 Pirates prospects:


1. Jameson Taillon, rhp 
2. Stetson Allie, rhp
3. Tony Sanchez, c
4. Luis Heredia, rhp
5. Starling Marte, of
6. Jeff Locke, lhp
7. Andrew Lambo, of
8. Bryan Morris, rhp
9. Chase d'Arnaud, ss/2b
10. Rudy Owens, lhp 


I'd probably have Morris higher and Allie lower (simply because high school pitchers are such risky properties), but that looks about right. Callis also has lots of praise for the Pirates, saying they have "three potential aces" in Taillon, Allie and Heredia.
