One of the Braves top prospects receives the call to AAA

Vaughn Grissom call up

With Michael Harris graduating from prospect status, the Braves farm system has never been so barren. But it does seem like every time we say that a fresh face surprises us out of nowhere. Freddy Tarnok could be that next revelation, as he was promoted to AAA Gwinnett today following a dominant stretch in Mississippi.

Tarnok is a 6’3″ right-hander that finished last season strong with Mississippi, posting a 2.60 ERA over nine starts. He started off 2022 shaky, but the last month has been exceptionally kind to him as he hasn’t allowed more than two runs in a single outing.

With so many pitchers at the Braves disposal right now, it will probably be a while before we see Tarnok. But who knows? If he finishes this year strong in AAA, perhaps he could compete for a spot on the Opening Day roster in 2023.
