Five Braves in Mid Season Top 50 Prospects List
From my friends over at Bullpen Banter, five Braves prospects made their mid-season ranking of top prospects. 5. Julio Teheran - RHP 12. Randall Delgado - RHP 21. Mike Minor - LHP 24. Arodys Vizcaino - RHP 42. Freddie Freeman - 1B Despite the Bullpen Banter guys being low on the Braves coming into this season (their pre-season prediction had ATL at 4th in the NL East), it's pleasing to see the team's great minor league system getting some much due recognition. Being in New York, it's obviously difficult to see the any of the Braves prospects play in person on any regular basis. The most 'northern' minor league Braves affiliate is the rookie-ball Danville Braves in Virginia. The Triple A Gwinnett Braves were scheduled to play the Syracuse Chiefs (AAA Nationals) in early May when I had tickets to check out the aforementioned Freddie Freeman, but rain decimated the series. The game I was set to see was PPD and was eventually made up down in Gwinnett.
