Stock Up, Stock Down for Atlanta Braves' Top 10 Prospects for Week 3
Matt Slocum
Starting pitching J.R. Graham is off to a hot start in 2014.

Welcome back to the Atlanta Braves weekly top 10 prospect stock watch, where every week, we'll check in on the organization's next generation of players. You can find last week's Braves prospect watch here.

All of the starting pitchers on this list had just one start each, and all of them continue to improve and post good numbers. Starting pitchers are by far the strength of the Braves system.

Meanwhile, the batters on this list all have some big holes in their games, and each of them need more time in the minor leagues. Luckily, none of these hitting prospects should be needed by the major league club any time soon.

With the starting pitching in Atlanta leading all of baseball, and Mike Minor and Gavin Floyd nearing their returns, there is no need for any of the starting pitchers on this list to be rushed. That will help the Braves develop these pitchers properly and get them ready for when they might be needed next season in Atlanta.

 

Season stats through the games of 4/19 are taken from FanGraphs. Weekly stats run from 4/13 to 4/19 and are taken from Minor League Central.
