Throughout the 2014 season we’ll keep tabs on the Atlanta Braves’ top prospects, tracking their progress from week to week. As prospects graduate to the major leagues we’ll remove them from the prospect list. If a prospect misses time with an injury, we’ll remove them from the list temporarily.
The idea is that you can come to this space every week and find out how each of the Braves' best minor leaguers are doing. You’ll also be able to see the new prospects who make it into the top 10 throughout the season.
There are a lot of top 10 Braves prospect lists out there. Which one to choose as a starting point for this list could be a challenge, so I thought, "why not average them all together." Luckily, someone already did the heavy lifting for us. To get our first listing of Braves top 10 prospects we’ll use the Beyond The Box Score consensus list.
*Note that “week one” of the prospect watch is considered the first 10 days of the season. So really it’s a week and a half.
*No. 10 prospect David Hale started the year in the majors, so he is replaced by the next prospect in the 10th spot.
