In a pretty surprising move Bryse Wilson has reportedly been promoted to Triple-A Gwinnett after just 15 starts in Double-A according to Bryse’s high school team.
Bryse started the season in High-A but after completely dominating the competition through five starts the Braves promoted him to Double-A to see if he could hold his weight there. We at Talking Chop expected Bryse to end up finishing out the season in Mississippi but after a very good stretch of nine games he finds himself getting promoted yet again. The twenty year old had a 3.97 ERA and held hitters to a line of .258/.323/339 in 15 games in Mississippi but his last nine games has seen him improve on that line to the tune of a 2.15 ERA while holding hitters to .228/.279/.307.
It’s a very surprising promotion given his age but Bryse has proved skeptics wrong since being drafted and he joins what is turning into an extremely strong rotation in Gwinnett. Bryse in just two years has gone from bullpen arm to workhorse starter that’s outpitched almost all of his teammates. Alongside Bryse in Gwinnett is now Kyle Wright, Luiz Gohara, and Touki Toussaint.
