We take a look at the best performances of the week in the Atlanta Braves farm system as things start to pick up after three weeks of action.
Players are starting to settle in now that we are three weeks through the Minor League Baseball season. Let’s see who’s hot on the farm for the Atlanta Braves.
Braves Triple-A: Gwinnett Stripers
Abraham Almonte: With the Marcell Ozuna injury, Almonte is playing like a guy who deserves a chance to fill in. He hit .467 this past week with a 1.289 OPS, including a homer and a double in 4 games.
Alex Jackson: The catcher hit 3 home runs on Thursday night and picked up 7 RBI on the week for the Stripers.
