    Seems like there would be a ground crew for that, but whatever turns him on.

    Budgets start getting a little tight once you get below AAA

    Gearrin is tearing up AAA too, another scoreless pair of innings last night. We'll see how many times Wren will let Durbin trot out and give up a homer before calling the kid back up.

    I think you'll see a move sooner or later. As well or as poorly a player performs, the fact that he's a member of the players fraternity factors into any decision. My guess is 30-40 games in.

    It was good to see Huddy get on the mound and do work today vs Norfolk.

    I really doubt we see him this year unless Rev just completely tanks at the plate and starts making a ton of errors.

    From Fangraphs

    Nick Ahmed, SS, Atlanta Braves
    Current Level: A+
    2012 Top 15 Prospects Ranking: NR
    Current Value: Monitor closely

    Atlanta targeted Ahmed with its second round draft pick in 2011 with the hope that he could move quickly through the system in need of middle infield depth. The shortstop is not flashy in the field but he’s steady, makes all the plays and has a strong arm. At the plate, he’s more if a No. 2 hitter with good barrel control and the ability to play small ball. He’s shown his ability to get on base early in 2012 by walking eight times in his first 11 games. He’s struck out just three times. Ahmed also possesses good speed and has stolen six bases in as many tries. He’s definitely worth keeping an eye on even if he’s currently stuck behind Tyler Pastornicky and Andrelton Simmons on the shortstop depth chart.
    And More

    Evan Gattis, C, Atlanta Braves
    Current Level: A+
    2012 Top 15 Prospects Ranking: NR
    Current Value: Monitor Closely

    Gattis entered 2012 as one of my “Must Follow” players despite failing to make the Braves pre-season Top 15 prospect list. An older player at 25, the backstop actually quit baseball at one point but has a new-found love of the game. He’s also making impressive strides. After walking just 25 times in 88 games last year, he’s already taken five free passes in 2012 and has more walks than strikeouts. He is also hitting for both power and average in the early going, but it’s something he’s done throughout his three-year pro career. Because his age is not in his favor, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Atlanta give him a quick promotion to double-A. I also wouldn’t be surprised to see him move out from behind the plate to first base, as he’s a below-average fielder.

    he will take on the back up role for bet like ross did for BMAC IMO, or he could be a very nice trade piece to someone else
