One Braves prospect has been named to the 2022 MLB Futures Game

The 2022 MLB Futures Game rosters were announced today, and the Braves have one prospect that will be featured — 2020 first-round pick Jared Shuster.

Coincidently, about ten minutes before the rosters were announced, I posted an article about the stellar campaign Shuster is putting together this season in AA. 

Shuster hit a couple of bumps in the road last month, but overall, this has been an extremely productive season for him with AA Mississippi. Over 15 starts, he’s boasting a very respectable 3.13 ERA, and his 1.04 WHIP and .209 batting average against are even more impressive. Shuster has shown a tremendous ability to pound the strike zone and keep the ball in the park this season, recording just 2.4 BB/9 and 0.9 HR/9. That will play at every level and could earn him a promotion to AAA Gwinnett sooner rather than later.

The Futures Game will take place at Dodger Stadium on July 16th as a part of All-Star weekend. It’s a fantastic even that has featured plenty of current members on the Braves roster, and Shuster looks to join that list of players before long.
