Braves: MLB Pipeline has an interesting pick for Atlanta’s fastest prospect

Spencer Schwellenbach Braves hat Ray Kerr

The Braves have lost a lot of their prospect talent, either to trades or graduation. MLB Pipeline is pretty low on their system as a whole. However, there’s still some gems to be found, even if they are ranked 30th out of 30 MLB teams:

The guy for the Braves is a name you may have heard a few times during Spring Training:

Braves: Kevin Kilpatrick, OF (Not ranked among Top 30)
As a Georgia high schooler, Kilpatrick posted some impressive 60-yard dash times, then took his speed to the College of Central Florida. The outfielder didn’t get to run a ton in junior college, though he did steal 18 bases in 22 tries over two summers in the Northwoods League. The Braves took a flyer (See what we did there?) on him in Round 17 of the 2022 Draft and he promptly went 10-for-11 in stolen-base attempts over 32 games during his summer pro debut.

Kilpatrick has stolen a base in the Spring and scored a few runs. After posting a .788 OPS last season in his debut year, he could be a guy who forces his way into Atlanta’s future plans if he keeps up this level of play.
