Welcome to the first Road to Atlanta podcast of June, hosted this week as a solo show by Eric Cole. Road to Atlanta leads the race on Atlanta Braves minor league content in podcast form, and this week the big news is the upcoming Florida Complex League season.

This season’s team features a few interesting prospects headlined by Tyler Collins and Ambioris Tavares, and will also likely feature rehabilitation starts in the near future from Mike Soroka and second round pick Spencer Schwellenbach. As for the regular action, Justyn-Henry Malloy has become one of the headline names in the system as he continues to rake for Rome and raise his stock. Also featured on that surging Rome team is Royber Salinas, the current holder of the minor league strikeout lead by a healthy margin.

Stick with Road to Atlanta each week as we cover weekly recaps of all of the action on the farm, breaking news, injury reports, and plenty of other content. As the season creeps towards July the draft coverage is quickly approaching and Road to Atlanta as well as the rest of the Battery Power network will have you covered.
