Braves top prospect suffers potentially significant injury

Vaughn Grissom call up

This past weekend was one of those Braves fans would like to completely forget, and the pain didn’t just end at the major-league level. The organization also suffered a critical injury to one of their top prospects, as Braden Shewmake was carted off the field after a nasty collision with Travis Demeritte.

I’ve yet to see an update on the severity of the injury, but it certainly looks like it could be season-ending.

According to MLB Pipeline, Braden Shewmake is the Braves #4 prospect. He’s hitting .259 on the season with seven homers for the Stripers.
