Braves likely to call upon Touki Toussaint for Monday’s doubleheader

It appears we could be getting a taste of another one of Atlanta’s top prospects. This time, it appears it will be Touki Toussaint.

Touki was a top pick who was traded from the Diamondbacks in exchange for taking on Bronson Arroyo‘s contract. This move is paying off dividends. Touki was a project who has come into his own, and 2018 has been his finest work. He has worked to the tune of a 2.68 in AA and AAA to go with a 10.7 K/9 rate.

Personally, I got the pleasure of watching Touki back when he was in Rome. His curveball is one of the finest I have ever seen, and he has a great fastball to pair with it. If you are talking upside, Touki may have a higher ceiling than any other arm in this system. He will (probably) get his first shot to prove this against the Miami Marlins on Monday.
