MLB Pipeline recently revealed the Top 100 prospects for the 2019 season, putting some of the league's youngest talents on the map for the future. The Padres lead the league with 10 prospects in the Top 100 list, while the Brewers, Red Sox, Marlins and Royals have just one Top 100 prospect.
A pair of the listed prospects took to Twitter to congratulate one another in a pretty hilariously wholesome exchange between Houston Astros pitcher Forrest Whitley and Reds outfielder Taylor Trammell.
Whitley is currently the No. 7 prospect in the nation, according to MLB Pipeline, and he is the top prospect in the Astros' organization. Meanwhile, Trammell ranks as the No. 16 prospect in the game, but according to Whitley, he's No. 1 in his heart.
Trammell ranks behind Nick Senzel as the Reds' top prospect in their farm system, but the pair represents a hopeful future in the Queen City.
The pair of young studs has a ton of upside that their respective teams will be hoping to unlock over the course of the next few seasons.
Whitley has yet to make a major league appearance. He logged eight starts at Double-A Corpus Christi in 2018, posting a 3.76 ERA with 34 strikeouts across 26.1 innings pitched, fending off a 50-game suspension midway through the year.
Trammell hit eight home runs and drove in 41 runs last season in High Single-A ball, slashing for a line of .277/.375/.406 in 110 games for the team.
