Wednesday we looked at the past and present of Braves coaching, as we also see one of the Braves’ top prospects get more recognition, in Hurston Waldrep. Waldrep seems to be the most consistently highly rated across evaluating media outlets of the Braves’ prospects, with AJ Smith-Shawver getting more sporadic inclusion on top prospect lists and Ignacio Alvarez getting one inclusion so far. The Braves will especially need some of their young pitching to step up in the coming years, as much of their rotation does not seem bound to stay playing baseball and for the Braves past this season.
