GREENSBORO, N.C. — The Pirates are well represented in ESPN's latest ranking of the top 100 players in Major League Baseball.

Problem is, four-fifths of the reps used to sport the black and gold.

Rays outfielder Austin Meadows appeared first, coming it at No. 90 after an All-Star 2019 campaign in which he slashed .291/.364/.558 with 33 home runs and 89 RBIs. Meadows was originally drafted by the Pirates in 2013 and made his MLB debut in 2018 for them before being traded in July of 2018 alongside Tyler Glasnow and Shane Baz for Chris Archer.
