September 13, 2017 Andy Harris 0

None of the Braves minor league affiliates are chasing a ring in the playoffs this season, but when it comes to prospect progression, the 2017 season probably couldn't have gone much better. The Braves have matriculated five of the pre-season OFR Top 30 prospects to the majors and have aggressively pushed most of their other…

August 15, 2017 Dylan Short 2

By this point, most fans have heard about the Atlanta Braves' starting pitching talent down on the farm. Outside of Ronald Acuna and Ozzie Albies, however, asking about the position prospects often resulted in nothing more than the chirping of some crickets.

This has been a banner year so far for the #1 farm system in baseball, the Atlanta Braves organization.

Braves Prospect Ozzie Albies is Ready for Atlanta

July 2, 2017 Micah Smith 3

There is much excitement around Atlanta Braves Country these days. More excitement than I can recall for a team that hasn’t been above .500 at any point in the first half of the season. But the excitement is not totally unwarranted. The Braves played well in June, finishing 16-12 for the month thanks to a…

Mississippi Braves: First Half Review
