    Hayden Simpson hasn't been heard from since he made 3 appearances in the Frontier League in 2013.

    Same goes for Reggie Golden after he was released in 2013 by the Cubs.

    It's always pretty cool to look at these old Top Prospects lists through a retrospective lens. I wonder what the Braves list looks like.... Teheran, Arodys Vizcaino, and Randall Delgado are supposed to be our 1-2-3 punch right now...
    Well Teheran and vizcaino are actually two of the Braves top pitchers in 2016. Weren't Kimbrel, freeman and Simmons also from that class? Sounds like a great group.

    Brett Jackson is currently a fitness coach at Uncaged Lifestyle in Berkeley, California. According to their site, Brett prepares individuals for outdoor activity and is certified for nutrition, health, and wellness coaching. Sounds like a really fun job. Here's Brett at work:



    Still in top shape.

    Remember when this was the future of the organization?
    1. Brett Jackson, outfielder
    2. Trey McNutt, pitcher
    3. Chris Carpenter, pitcher
    4. Jay Jackson, pitcher
    5. Hayden Simpson, pitcher
    6. Reggie Golden, outfielder
    7. Josh Vitters, third baseman
    8. Robinson Lopez, pitcher
    9. Austin Reed, pitcher
    10. Alberto Cabrera, pitcher
    11. Marquez Smith, third baseman
    12. DJ LeMahieu, infielder
    13. Rafael Dolis, pitcher
    14. Brett Wallach, pitcher
    15. Brooks Raley, pitcher
    16. Su-Min Jung, pitcher
    17. Austin Kirk, pitcher
    18. Jin-Yeong Kim, pitcher
    19. Ben Wells, pitcher
    20. Welington Castillo, catcher


    Thanks a lot, Jim Hendry. LaMahieu and Castillo have found success at the major league level, but only five other players even reached the majors, and only briefly on Cubs teams that were desperate.
