Although big league Spring Training has been canceled, the Braves are still getting some good news on the prospect front:
"He's just unbelievable."

Braves hitting instructor Greg Walker has been gushing over Shea Langeliers, which is really encouraging when considering his ability behind the plate.
“You could always see the potential,” Walker said. “He’s an unbelievable kid. You talk about makeup? That’s how you draw it up. He’s just unbelievable.”
Ben Sestanovich, Atlanta’s Assistant General Manager, had similar praise for the Baylor Product:
“We saw him hold his own at the alternate site the summer before. and we saw him hit a lot of balls hard, so I don’t think the power production was as much of a surprise to those of us who had been around him.”
Apparently, Langeliers has been working with a hitting instructor in Texas, and he also has a lot of high praise for his teammates, the Braves, and their staff:
“I feel like I’ve definitely grown”
“We’re surrounded by a bunch of great players and great coaches. We bring the best out of each other. You just grow along the way and know there is always improvement along the way. You just take that attitude every day.”
It’s encouraging to hear, and hopefully, Langeliers can deliver in Gwinnett in 2022.
