Having several top-tier prospects is nice, but what’s even nicer is examining those prospects, making comparisons, and giving Atlanta Braves fans something to look forward to in 2018 and beyond.

A few weeks ago, I wrote an article with Tomahawk Take highlighting five Atlanta Braves prospects that I deemed “untouchable.” There’s good reason to believe that Alex Anthopoulos will be hanging onto these guys until they’ve shown what they can do at the MLB level.

Moving forward, I thought it would be a good idea to write a “sequel” of sorts to this list of prospects, taking things a step further by making an MLB comparison (past or present) to each of my five untouchable prospects.

While there’s no guarantee that any of these guys will be what they’re projected to be in the MLB, speculation is always fun. Without further ado, let’s take a look at who some of our most beloved prospects could grow up to be.
