Atlanta Braves news and notes from Saturday

The FCL Braves won the Florida Complex League championship in dominant fashion over the Yankees’ squad. While the team wasn’t exactly dominant for the entire FCL season, it is encouraging for the Braves’ lower level affiliates such as the FCL Braves to be having some success after they have been thinned out over the last few years with trades, promotions, graduations, and the international free agency sanctions. Furthermore, exciting 2023 prep draft pick Isaiah Drake and recent top international signings Diego Benitez and Douglas Glod played big roles in this championship, so the prospects that are the most likely to impact the majors helped drive this success. Here’s hoping this isn’t the only championship brought home by a member of the organization in 2023.
