Over the next few seasons the Oakland Athletics will be adding quite a bit of talented youth to the big league club.
Chapman, Holmes, Barreto and Puk are just a few of the very good prospects in their seriously underrated farm system.
Even though Barreto didn’t start the A’s off at number 52, that doesn’t mean the A’s have a poor group minor leaguers.

The pitchers who came along with Holmes, Cotton and Montas, have been stellar at their respective levels and for Cotton in 2016 that meant making some pretty spectacular starts for the Athletics in September.
Sean Manaea is already slated as the A’s starter based off of his performances for the A’s in 2016.
By the time it’s 2020, the A’s will have a whole new look and it will be a good one.
