It seems as if just about every top pitching prospect in the Braves farm system has been awarded a midseason promotion. You can now add Ian Anderson to that list:

Anderson has been terrific in A+ ball, posting a nice 2.52 ERA and 10.6 K/9 rate in 20 starts. Opposing hitters have hit just .198 this season against the 3rd overall pick in the 2016 MLB Draft.
Anderson showed he had nothing left to prove at the A+ level two starts ago when he threw 7.2 innings of no-hit ball.
We have Anderson ranked as the 4th best prospect in the organization. He is certainly a guy to keep an eye on in the pipeline.
