Stock Up, Stock Down for Atlanta Braves' Top 10 Prospects for Week 11

According to a tweet by Braves beat writer David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Atlanta prospect and current southpaw reliever Alex Wood will earn a spot start this week, after Brandon Beachy suffered a minor setback in his rehab.

After watching Wood dominate college hitters last year and AA hitters early this season, it's fair to say that this could be an audition of sorts for perhaps an extended look at a rotation spot in 2014. Should Atlanta deal Paul Maholm to make room for Brandon Beachy, Wood could become the team's sixth starter with a good performance this week.

As a whole, this was a very good week for Braves prospects, as the stocks of more than half of the top 10 are rising.
