Since our last update Salt River had only two games, a pair of losses, sandwiched around a Wednesday off day. Braves prospects didn’t see a ton of time in those two games overall, though we did get to witness yet another good game at the plate for David McCabe.

Alec Barger

Cumulative stats: 9.1 IP, 0.96 ERA, 2 BB, 13 K

Barger came out of the pen for the seventh inning on Tuesday. He allowed a hit, but did get strikeouts for all three outs he recorded. This appearance brought his ERA below 1.00 and has a matching 0.96 WHIP to go with his 0.96 ERA in addition to 13 strikeouts to just two walks.

Dylan Dodd

Cumulative stats: 4 starts, 19 IP, 6.16 ERA, 6 BB, 20 K

Patrick Halligan

Cumulative stats: 7.1 IP, 11 H, 8 K, 5 BB, 10 ER, 12.27 ERA

Halligan came in during the middle of the third inning on Thursday and got Salt River out of the inning without any further damage, then came back out for the fourth and allowed a pair of runs on three hits while recording just one more out.

David McCabe

Cumulative stats: 20-72, 14 R, 6 2B, 8 RBI, .809 OPS
