It was a rough week for a few of the Braves' top pitching prospects as they go through the growing pains that are a part of every player's minor league journey. On the other side of the ball, some of the Braves' hitting prospects are starting to get hot at the plate.
Overall, though, the Braves' minor league system is severely lacking in top hitting prospects, especially power-hitting prospects. I expect that this will be a major area of focus for the team in this June's draft.
Atlanta has traditionally focused on starting pitching with its high draft picks, and the positive results of that can be seen in the team's current crop of top prospects.
