The Braves are playing dominant baseball at the major league level right now, starting the season 5-1 from games on the road, with the latter three against a strong Cardinals team. Matt Olson looks like an absolute force at the plate, Ronald Acuna appears to have returned to Peak Acuna, and Austin Riley continues to mash baseballs. Additionally, the team’s pitching is largely cruising with a strong staff from rotation to bullpen.
Meanwhile, the Braves’ next wave of exciting prospects got assigned to their minor league teams in the lower levels. The Augusta Greenjackets and Rome Braves rosters look really fun, and remember, MiLBTV is now included in an MLBTV subscription, so you can watch those prospects whenever you want if you are a subscriber.
