    I'll take it! Dansby, not surprisingly, offered sole high praise of Wright. I imagine he'll start off in Rome.

    There's a guy, Sam Carlson that hasn't been called yet and might get to the Braves at 41.

    here's the MLB write up

    Part of yet another deep crop of Georgia prep outfielders, Waters solidified his top-two-rounds candidacy with a strong performance on the high school showcase circuit. He started by showing some of the best exit velocity at the Perfect Game National in June, and he finished by making repeated loud contact at the WWBA World Championships in October. This spring, he won Gatorade's state player of the year award and led Etowah to the state class 7-A championship. A switch-hitter, Waters demonstrates more power from the left side of the plate. From the right side, he peppers the gaps with line drives. He has good feel for the barrel, has no problems handling quality fastballs and has the potential to hit for average and power. A good athlete, Waters has plus speed and uses it to steal bases and play a solid center field. He also has plus arm strength that would fit nicely in right field if he's needed there. He has committed to Georgia, where his older brother Zach pitched one season.

    RIP Gene Wilder

    BA has Waters as their 34th prospect. Sounds like a good pick.

    ATL took a guy that should get to ATL pretty quickly and then a HS bat to stock the farm for years to come. Falls perfectly inline with what the FO talked about this spring - having waves of talent to keep this team competitive for a number of years.

    Wright is exciting. He gives ATL yet another 1/2 SP option for the near future. ATL may be rolling out five 2/3 SPs in a few years. That will win a lot of games.

    I wonder where Wright will rank among our prospects. I'm guessing he'll be slotted in somewhere at the back end of our top 10.

    Round 1: Mike Hughes CB UCF
    Round 2: Brian O'Neill OT Pittsburgh
    Round 4: Jalyn Holmes DE Ohio State
    Round 5: Tyler Conklin TE Central Michigan
    Round 5: Daniel Carlson K Auburn
    Round 6: Colby Gossett G Appalachian State
    Round 6: Ade Aruna DE Tulane
    Round 7: Devante Downs LB California

    Hoping we take Tristan Beck if we can afford him with our next pick. If not him the. Evan Skoug out of TCU.

    Just saw a comparison to a young Jacob DeGrom. Already touching mid 90's.
