    I guess it's because he's like 25 years old playing in Class A Rome?

    He went from a 222 ABs/.288 AVG/.339 OBP/.387 SLG/.726 OPS/ 4 HRs last year

    to 298 ABs/.323/.383/.620/1.004 OPS/ 21 HRs this year? That's pretty crazy. He deserves a promotion, that's for sure. Dude has either hit the roids or figured out how to use his power and batting mechanics.

    Gattis was drafted in 2010 so his last year struggles could very well be from just being new to pro-ball... hes an older cat but at catcher that really doesnt matter i think. Id be interested to see how at Lynchburg before this year ends.

    Gwinnett
    Delgado 3.2 IP, 8 H, 8 ER, 4 BB, 5 SO, 3 HR 4.32 ERA
    Hoover 1 IP 3 SO 5.40 ERA


    Kyle Kubitza, 3B - 3rd Round
    This is one of those "Braves picks," that will probably baffle some people as to why they selected him this high. He was ranked as the 28th-best prospect in Texas, and unranked nationally. He is a patient hitter with power, but with inconsistent swing mechanics. For a college hitter he will likely take some time to develop as a hitter, and even more time to refine his defense, though he has the arm strength and athleticism to stay at third base.

    Projected as more of a seventh round selection, the Braves must have just loved this kid to have taken him so high. Of course a high selection like this may have been necessary to lure him away from his senior season at Texas State. He seems to have the room to add muscle as well
    Thomas La Stella, 2B - 8th Round
    Described as a bat-only player who will wind up in left field. Good patience at the plate mixed with excellent raw power. He held his own in the Cape Cod League last summer and should adapt well to the wood bats. His patient approach at the plate will serve him well.

    it seems he may not be as advanced as we thought. More reason to appreciate the work of heyward and freeman.

    He still profiles as a good defender because of his range. Errors can be fixed.

    Still though, 41? Damn.

    Yeah he has age on his side. His bat has shown great improvement and hes shown speed on the basepaths. Im sure he will work extensively on that D.

    we have some interesting prospects right now, the last two draft for the braves has been offense first, pitching second, which is reasonable, we only have 1 good prospect in the upper minors (AAA) Tyler Pastornicky, but we have a ton of players having good years in the lower minors: K. Kubitza , B. Drury , W. Beckwith are my favorites from Danville (R)
    T. La Stella , E. Gattis are having a great year in Rome(A), M Lipka is having a down year, and E. Salcedo is improving slowly.
    A. Simmons, A. Cunningham , J. Terdoslavich and C. Bethancourt in Lynchburg (A+)

    After that hitting prospects are scarce: Mycal Jones is the only prospect of interest in AA (he is 24 years old so he needs to show something quick)
    Like i said T. Pastornicky is tearin' up AAA but he is the only prospect of interest in Gwinnett...

    We always talk about our great farm because of the pitching prospects we have, but that could change in a year or two, some of those prospects are far away from the bigs, and we have to wait if they can continue hitting in the upper minors but if a couple of them pan out, we may have a good young team in our hands.

    I thought you were joking when you said Salcedo had 41 errors. WTF? That's crazily insane. He makes Jose Offerman look good. Seriously though, I'm sure they'll work with him on his defense and maybe he'll show signs of improvement.

    No problem... I hope everyone enjoys the updates. I want to encourage people to add any scouting reports or any tad bits on any prospects they come across.

    What are Salcedo's errors? Are they throwing or are they due to the fact that he has a huge range and can't get to EVERYTHING? In other words, how correctable are the errors?
