Braves Weekly Prospect Report

Rome Braves

Who’s Hot?

Trey Harris– Over his last ten games, Harris hit .429 with a .571 OBP. He has scored nine runs and driven in ten.

Who’s Not?

Trey Riley– Riley is showing electric stuff but is appearing to be a feast or famine type of pitcher. He either gets rocked or strikes guys out. In his last start, Riley threw four innings and gave up five runs. The bright side: he struck out six batters in those four innings.

Justin Dean– Dean started hot, but is slumping, hitting .190 with 17 Ks in his last 42 at-bats.

Florida Fire Frogs

Who’s Hot?

William Contreras– Contreras is hotter than a dancing bobcat right now. He is batting .378 with an OBP of .486 in his last ten. The future backstop in Atlanta has also scored seven runs during that stretch.

Riley Unroe– Unroe is hitting .317 with two home runs and seven runs scored in his last week and a half.

Hayden Deal– Deal continues to pitch well. In his last start, Hayden got the win pitching 6-shutout innings while striking out eight batters.

Nolan Kingham– Nolan pitched a “Maddux” this week, tossing a complete-game shutout in under 100 pitches. The game only took an hour and a half.

Jaseel De La Cruz– Cruz threw well again, going six innings while giving up one run and striking out six hitters.

Who’s Not?

Izzy Wilson– Izzy’s slow start continues — Wilson is hitting just .214 over his past ten games while striking out nine times in 28 at-bats.

Drew Lugbauer– Lugbauer isn’t hitting much of anything right now. Drew is batting .175 with 13 strikeouts in his last 40 at-bats.

Freddy Tarnok– Freddy got hammered in his last appearance giving up eight runs in two innings.

Mississippi Braves

Who’s Hot?

Cristian Pache– Cristian is raking in the hits — batting.378 in his past ten games. The negative, if there is one, is that he is not producing or scoring runs. Pache scored four runs over the same span.

Drew Waters– Waters is putting up MLB The Show numbers right now, hitting .366 with an ABSURD .585 OBP, including a couple of home runs, over the last week and a half.

Jeremy Walker– As a long-relief option, Walker earned a win while throwing five shutout innings and striking out seven batters.

Joey Wentz- Wentz got back to his typical Joey Wentz numbers in his last start. He went seven innings, gave up no runs, and struck out seven hitters.

Patrick Weigel- Weigel is stretching back out into a starter. In his last outing, Patrick threw three perfect innings — no hits, no walks, and four strikeouts.

Tucker Davidson– Davidson has been low-key dominant all month, and this week was no different. In one start, Tucker threw five innings of 1-run baseball. His ERA for the year is under one.

Ian Anderson– Ian got a win, and found his dominant stuff in his last outing — striking out eight over six innings.

Who’s Not?

Ray-Patrick Didder– Didder continues how slow start. Over his last 33 at-bats, he’s hit .182 with two bombs and 14 strikeouts

Gwinnett Stripers

Who’s Hot?

Adam Duvall– Duvall has been destroying baseballs. He is hitting .368 with seven homers, 15 RBIs, and 12 runs scored over his last ten. There was a stretch where Duvall homered in five straight games and had eight in nine games. Perhaps there’s a role for him after all in Atlanta, or the Braves could use him as trade bait for another relief arm.

Austin Riley– Austin Riley must have watched Tin Cup recently and took it to heart when he heard, “Grip it, rip it, and let the big dog eat!” that is exactly what he is doing. Over his past ten games, Riley is smashing at a .400 clip with five tanks, 11 RBIs, and 12 runs scored. He even had a 492-foot bomb.

Sean Newcomb– Newk wants to get back to Atlanta, and it shows. In his last start, Sean threw six innings of 1-run baseball. The most important stat is that he gave ZERO free-passes to first base – FOR THE SECOND TIME IN A ROW. Keep in mind; he had only four starts in his professional career (dating back to 2015) without a walk before his last two.

Jose Rafael De Paula– With the state of the bullpen in shambles, it might be worth noting De Paula’s good work. Over the past week, Jose notched two saves while pitching four innings of zero-run baseball and striking out eight hitters.

Corbin Clouse-The lefty makes it back to the hot board with a week of solid relief work. Clouse threw 3.2 innings, gave up zero runs, and struck out five hitters.

Who’s Not?

Kyle Wright- Wright has been terrible this past week. In his last start, he got the loss, throwing 1.2 innings and allowing eight earned runs.

Touki Toussaint– Touki did get a win this week, but he is not missing many bats. In five innings of work, Touki allowed 11 hits and gave up four earned runs. Conveniently, the Braves have called him back up to Atlanta for this weekend’s series versus the Marlins.
