With the calendar having rolled over to June, two major things happened in the world of MLB prospects. The amateur player draft took place, adding a slew of talented youngsters to teams' lists of their top prospects. Also, money-conscious teams have begun calling up their best players as the timeline for avoiding a year of arbitration eligibility has moved in the organizations' favor.
For the Atlanta Braves, one of these two events was much more impactful than the other. While Atlanta has some useful pieces in the minor leagues, it lacks a top-flight prospect that fans are clambering for. The Braves have also already promoted a couple of key men to the bigs in second baseman Tommy La Stella and reliever Shae Simmons.
However, the MLB draft was a worthwhile and successful effort for Atlanta, as it managed to grab at least one prospect who immediately finds himself in the top 10 of the organization. Although, he is not without his faults. In that regard, he is not alone.
Here are the strengths and weaknesses of Atlanta's top 10 prospects, with ranking according to Bleacher Report's own Martin Gandy.
