SportsTalkATL Post-Trade deadline Top 30 Braves Prospect List

dfu19033012 braves at phillies

With the trade deadline behind us, it’s time to update our prospect list. A few notable names left our system, including one arm we had ranked in the top-five, but the Braves hung onto their most valuable prospects and significantly improved their team before July 31st.

1. Cristian Pache
2. Ian Anderson
3. Drew Waters
4. Kyle Wright
5. Kyle Muller

The top four remain the same. Cristian Pache was the unanimous #1 among all three of us. He’s a borderline top ten prospect in all of baseball and made his AAA debut yesterday – along with Ian Anderson and Drew Waters – the Braves #2 and #3 prospects. Anderson left much to be desired in his first outing with the Stripers, but he remains the clear-cut top arm in the Braves farm system. Waters had three hits in his first game in Gwinnett. If he continues his torrid stretch of hitting; he will have a legitimate claim to overtake Pache as Atlanta’s top prospect. Kyle Wright stays at #4, and Kyle Muller makes his debut in the top five with Joey Wentz off to Detroit.

6. Bryse Wilson
7. William Contreras
8. Shea Langaliers
9. Braden Shewmake
10. Huascar Ynoa

Kyle Muller’s jump into the top five allows everyone to move up a spot. Kolby Allard, who was our tenth-ranked prospect before the trade deadline, was dealt to the Rangers for Chris Martin. That lets Braden Shewmake, the 21st overall pick from this year’s draft, hop up to nine. He’s been stroking the ball thus far in Rome. Huascar Ynoa introduces himself to the top ten as well.

11. Tucker Davidson
12. Patrick Weigel
13. Trey Harris
14. Greyson Jenista
15. Freddy Tarnok

11-15 looks way different than it did a week ago. We moved Tucker Davidson all the way up from eighteen to eleven. He was carrying a 2.03 ERA in 21 starts for Mississippi and recently was promoted to AAA Gwinnett. The southpaw could see a stint in Atlanta as early as next year. Patrick Weigel and Trey Harris each move up two spots, while Greyson Jenista and Freddy Tarnok join the top fifteen for the first time all season.

16. Jeremy Walker
17. CJ Alexander
18. Thomas Burrows
19. Justin Dean
20. Jasseel De La Cruz

With all the departures in our minor league system, 16-20 is essentially what 21-25 was before the trade deadline. The only small move we made is a slight bump for Jeremy Walker over CJ Alexander. Walker made his major league debut and appeared three times for the Braves without allowing a run since our last prospect list.

21. Alex Jackson
22. Trey Riley
23. Jefrey Ramos
24. Daysbel Hernandez
25. Bryce Ball

Like the group before, Alex Jackson, Trey Riley, and Jefrey Ramos each move up five spots due to departures ahead of them. But we do introduce a couple of new names to the top 30 prospect list. Daysbel Hernandez is a 22-year-old Cuban reliever that is lighting it up for the Florida Fire Frogs. He has a 1.74 ERA in 29 appearances this season. Bryce ball is a powerful 6’6″ first baseman that is tearing up the Appalachian League. He could be promoted Rome before season’s end.

26. AJ Graffino
27. Victor Vodnik
28. Logan Brown
29. Riley Delgado
30. Beau Philip

AJ Graffino moves up three spots along with Victor Vodnik. Then we add three new names to the prospect list to round it out. Logan Brown is currently the catcher for the Florida Fire Frogs and has slashed .278/.330/.356 over two levels this season. Riley Delgado is a shortstop that is also in Florida. His contact bat sneaks him into the top 30. And Beau Phillip is another shortstop prospect that was selected in the second round of this year’s draft out of Oregon State.
