Atlanta Braves scouting director Brian Bridges discusses the selection of Carter Stewart and tells reporters what he brings to the table.
“We are fortunate to add Carter to the organization,” Braves Director of Amateur Scouting Brian Bridges said. “We’ve been fortunate to select Braves-type pitchers, Braves-type players over the last couple of years, and we feel Carter is another example of that type of player.”
Braves scouting director Brian Bridges says Carter's curveball stood out last summer, but what vaulted him to the top of their draft board was the velo increase gained when he went from 6'4 to 6'6. Was 88-90 last summer. Sat 92-94 this year and touched 98.— Mark Bowman (@mlbbowman) June 5, 2018
