We take a look back at the last two weeks for the Atlanta Braves and who has performed the best down on the farm.
I didn’t have an update last week, so this week we’ll look at the past two weeks for the Atlanta Braves farm system and who has performed the best.
We are now two months through the minor league season, so we have a lot of data to go on, and players are starting to get promoted.
Braves AAA — Gwinnett Stripers
Johan Camargo — Perhaps increasing his trade stock, Camargo has hit .302 the last two weeks with a pair of home runs and a .899 OPS.
Orlando Arcia — While not as hot as when the Braves traded for him, Arcia hit .262 in his last 12 games with 2 home runs. And now they are trying him out in left field…
Thomas Burrows — He’s allowed just 1 hit and 1 walk in his last 5.2 innings with 10 strikeouts. Maybe he gets a shot to help out the bullpen … why not?
Braves AA — Mississippi Braves
Braden Shewmake — It’s been a struggle for the shortstop to start 2021, but he’s heating up hitting .378 in his last 12 games with 2 home runs and 12 RBI.
Trey Harris — One of my favorites is also heating up with 13 hits in his last 10 games.
Wendell Rijo and Shea Langeliers both have 4 home runs over the last two weeks.
Nolan Kingham — Before his promotion, Kingham pitched 13.1 shutout innings with 12 strikeouts in his last two starts.
Brooks Wilson — He’s been one of the best relievers in Double-A this year. In the past two weeks, he’s pitched 6.2 scoreless innings with 12 strikeouts.
Braves High-A — Rome Braves
Michael Harris — Surprising, I know, but he’s actually cooled off lately. Harris hit just .279 in his last 10 games, but he does have 2 home runs and 15 RBI with a .512 slugging and .810 OPS.
Alan Rangel — The 23-year-old out of Mexico struck out 25 batters in his last three starts with a 1.59 ERA over 17 innings.
Freddy Tarnok — It’s really good to see Tarnok healthy and pitching well. In his last two starts, he hasn’t given up a run and has struck out 16 in just 8.2 innings.
Spencer Strider — The 2020 draft pick struck out 12 in 6 innings in his last start before getting called up to Double-A.
Braves Single-A — Augusta GreenJackets
Bryson Horne — The first baseman hit .324 the last two weeks with 5 (yes, five!) home runs and a 1.161 OPS. The 22-year-old from Columbus State was a non-drafted free-agent signed in 2020 and is hitting .269 on the year with a .755 OPS.
Tanner Gordon — In his last three starts he’s posted a 1.88 ERA in 14.1 innings with 18 strikeouts with just 6 hits and 2 walks allowed. The 23-year-old was a 6th round pick in 2019 out of Indiana.
That does it for this week’s Minor League recap for the Atlanta Braves. Who has impressed you the most through the first two months?
