Braves promote 2020 first-round pick Jared Shuster

The Braves haven’t been hesitant in moving up their 2020 draft picks quickly through the system. There were only five rounds, but Bryce Elder — Atlanta’s fifth-round selection — is already pitching for AAA Gwinnett. Spencer Strider, who is already turning heads nationally, is starting for AA Mississippi, and now, first-round pick Jared Shuster will be joining him.

For whatever reason, Shuster got a late start to his season, which began in High-A Rome. He’s made 14 starts there, and like the rest of this small draft class, he’s impressed. His 3.70 ERA isn’t eye-popping, but his 73 strikeouts over 58.1 innings is much more encouraging. Opponents are also hitting just .205 against him, and his WHIP is a minuscule 1.06.

In his recent mid-season update, our¬†own Clint Manry recently ranked Shuster just outside the Braves’ top ten prospects, slotting him at #11. This is another promising sign for a Braves farm system that needs some replenishing following all the graduations and recent trades.
