Atlanta Braves Minor League Recap: 8/5

Gwinnett - Off


Montgomery 6, Mississippi 3

  • J. Heyward 1-4
  • F. Freeman 1-3 2B, RBI, BB
  • W. Cabrera 1-4 3B, RBI

After streaking for about 12 games Mississippi has lost 3 straight and 5 of their last 8 games. Jason Heyward played CF in this one, but don't expect him man that spot very often when he gets to Atlanta. He is a prototype RF and that is where he will stay in the long run.

Myrtle Beach @ Salem - RAIN


Savannah 4, Rome 2

  • J. Teheran 5IP 5H 4R 1BB 8K

Julio Teheran's first start in full season ball was a little hit and a little miss. He kept his control strong and had the strike out pitch working. Six of his eight strike outs were looking, and I would wager that they were on his curveball. The scouting report from his last game in the Appy League was he has picked up some depth on the pitch and has been freezing both right handed and left handed hitters with it. His only real problem was when he got hit, he got hit hard. Four of his 5 hits allowed were for extra bases (2 doubles, 2 homers). In the end I still consider this an encouraging game.

Princeton @ Danville - RAIN

GCL Phillies 4, GCL Braves 2

  • A. Odreman 2-4 K
  • A. Feliz 2-4 RBI, K

For a guy that started out so hot, Alberto Odreman has really fallen off. He had 7 of his 8 extra base hits in his first 5 games of the season. He then went on to post a .507 OPS for the month of July. Not great.
