Atlanta Braves: Full Overview of Braves' Farm System and Prospects for 2013

One of the pitfalls of not spending overslot in the draft, at least prior to the inception of the slot system in the new Collective Bargaining Agreement, is it becomes harder to add high-upside talent to the farm system. 

For the Atlanta Braves, the international market has been their saving grace over the years. The current front office regime believes that the best course of action for the draft is to go after low-cost, low-ceiling players who can move quickly through the system. 

Yet even with all those flaws, the Braves find themselves in a great position to compete for a championship this season after nearly making the postseason two years ago and winning a Wild Card spot last year. 

The acquisition of Justin Upton did cost the Braves prospects—but no one they will really miss that much. 

Here is a complete overview of the Braves' farm system heading into 2013, the top prospects in the system, who could make an impact in Atlanta this season and who could emerge as a star in the system by the end of the year.
