Atlanta Braves: 3 Prospects Likely to be Traded at Deadline
Atlanta Braves — Tucker Davidson
This is one I certainly hope is not true, but if the Braves do make a big splash at the trade deadline he’s a name that could be included in such a deal.
Again, assuming Ian Anderson is untouchable, then the prospects most teams will likely turn to at that point will be Davidson.
Davidson is a 24-year-old lefty that reached Triple-A in 2019 and appears to be ready to make his big league debut.
And that’s why I think he could be available in trades because otherwise, I have no clue why the Braves haven’t given him a shot in their big league rotation.
He appears to be the most polished of any of the Braves prospects that haven’t been given a shot yet, and there’s no reason to delay starting his service time clock.
Like with Wilson, this is kind of telling to me that maybe the Braves just aren’t huge believers in Davidson.
Having seen him in person, I certainly don’t view him as a top of the rotation starter, but he’s someone I feel confident will be able to go out there and give you five or six solid innings every time out.
And perhaps the Braves call him up this week and give him a shot, making this part of the article pointless, but I still think if there is a big trade out there Davidson could be the one involved.
Again, I certainly hope that’s not the case and I hope he gets a chance in the Braves’ big league rotation soon.
Let me know in the comments below which prospects you think could be on the way out this trade deadline.
