It was a bad week for Atlanta Braves pitching prospects, as pretty much every one of them on our watch list got shelled.
The batters fared better, and one of them even got promoted to the majors. Catcher Christian Bethancourt was called up to fill in for the injured Evan Gattis. Bethancourt is only expected to stay up while Gattis is on the disabled list, so we’ll keep him on our watch list for now.
No. 6 prospect Braxton Davidson is in complex ball (low-level rookie ball), and with stats there being unreliable, we’ll keep him off the list of prospects we track.
No. 3 prospect J.R. Graham is still day-to-day with what we hope is a minor injury, so we’ll remove him from the list this week.
