Now that the 2020 MLB Draft has finished, let us take a look at the Oakland A’s top ten prospects for 2020.

Prospects are the lifeblood for any small market team and the Oakland A’s are no exception. Through their trades of higher priced talent, and their focus on international prospects, the A’s have managed to build a fairly impressive farm system.

While the A’s minor leagues have plenty of intriguing prospects, it is also considered to be top heavy. This is understandable, given that three of their top prospects – Jesus Luzardo, A.J. Puk, and Sean Murphy – are expected to play a key part in the A’s fortunes for 2020. That is, if the season actually begins.

Even if that does not happen, the A’s are still in great shape for the future, both in the immediate and the long term. With several other intriguing pitching prospects, and solid prospect depth, the A’s farm system is still to be envied, even if it is not what it once was.

Let us take a look at the top ten prospects for the Oakland A’s, some of whom could make their major league debut sometime this season.
