Mid-Season Top 30 Braves Prospect Update

July 17, 2017 Andy Harris 0

This has been a banner year so far for the #1 farm system in baseball, the Atlanta Braves organization. While the major league squad has been showing signs of respectability by playing near .500 ball, the gobs of young talent accumulated by the John Hart/John Coppolella front office have been working diligently in preparation for…

July 14, 2017 Andy Harris 0

As is usual with AAA teams, the Gwinnett Braves encountered significant roster upheaval in the first half of the season on their way to a 44-44 record going into the International League All-Star break.

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.

A year removed from winning the South Atlantic League Championship, the Rome squad saw almost 100% roster turnover (as expected), but with a farm system as highly regarded as Atlanta's it still expected to be in contention for…

Ronald Acuna is Struggling… and That’s a Good Thing

June 14, 2017 Micah Smith 2

Ronald Acuna is one of the top prospects in baseball. Outfield Fly Rule’s prospect guru Andy Harris ranked Ronald Acuna 10th before the season, saying, "he possesses perhaps the highest ceiling of any Braves position player (second possibly to Kevin Maitan)." He continued to gush over him in his 33% prospect review. Baseball America ranks him the…
