Stock Up, Stock Down for Atlanta Braves' Top 10 Prospects for Week 19

At the major league level, things are not going well for the Atlanta Braves. The team had lost nine of its last 11 ballgames heading into Sunday night.

The offense continues to no-show for games on end. However, during this recent stretch, the pitching has also failed the Braves, especially considering five of the 11 games were played at San Diego and Seattle, two pitcher-friendly parks housing teams with poor offenses.

The skid has dropped Atlanta well behind Washington for the NL East crown, caused the team's run differential to drop to essentially zero and seen the Braves drop below a cavalcade of NL wild card hopefuls heading into mid-August.

With September call-ups on the horizon and the big league club needing help in a number of areas, it is all the more important for Atlanta's prospects to be playing at the top of their game.

Not all prospects are playing for 2014 though. Many have a further scope to their careers and aren't ready even for a late-season trial run—or "cup of coffee," as it's known. Nevertheless, prospects at all ability levels and all career trajectories are trending one way or the other in Week 19.
