Stock Up, Stock Down for Atlanta Braves' Top 10 Prospects for Week 14

Injuries to Atlanta outfielders have thrust Joey Terdoslavich into a regular role for the time being.

After being declared the heir to the throne of Chipper Jones and promptly falling out of favor following a wretched season at the plate in 2012, Joey Terdoslavich has torn up Triple-A pitching this season, posting a .318/.359/.567 slash line to pair with 18 home runs and 24 doubles. 

The first baseman/outfielder was rewarded with a big league call-up when Evan Gattis went down and has since served mainly as a pinch hitter with the Atlanta Braves. With injuries to Jason Heyward and the Upton brothers, though, Terdoslavich will see an expanded role until said injuries have healed.

He likely won't turn into Freddie Freeman, but the switch-hitting Terdoslavich provides a lot of power with decent contact skills to boot. Should Brian McCann walk this winter and Gattis take over full-time catching duties, Terdoslavich could find himself in Gattis' 2013 role for the duration of the 2014 season.
