Braves: Top prospect is heating up and flirts with a no-hitter in Augusta

Drew Lugbauer

The Braves made Owen Murphy the 20th overall pick in 2022, selecting him out of Riverside-Brookfield High School in Illinois. He has had a so-so start to his minor league career, but he’s young and showed off part of what the Braves loved about him on August 11th against the Salem Red Sox.

Murphy had a fantastic game, and he has had a good August overall. On August 4th against the Columbia Fireflies, Murphy tossed five innings of three hit, one run ball while striking out nine batters.

Hopefully, Murphy continues to develop; the Braves have been aggressive with prospect promotions, and it would be nice to see Murphy reach Rome in 2023 and potentially Mississippi by 2024.
