It's impressive the amount of talent the Braves have built up after promoting and trading a lot of the prospect capital they had. Now, they are in a favorable position with the number of budding prospects at each level of the minor leagues.

While the majority of attention across the Atlanta Braves organization right now is at the major league level, there are some players in the minors worth looking at. As we look at each level, there are a few prospects in particular who are off to impressive starts to the 2024 season. Even despite a smaller sample size, these five are among the most notable so far.

5 Atlanta Braves prospects enjoying strong starts to 2024 season

Nacho Alvarez Jr.

While it is certainly a shorter sample size, Nacho Alvarez Jr., the Braves No. 6 overall prospect, is off to an impressive start in what is his first-ever action at the Double-A level. Across four games, Alvarez is slashing .385/.556/.462 (5-for-13) with two RBI and two stolen bases, while also having drawn five walks to only two strikeouts.

Alvarez having a great season would be wonderful as he could be a very big part of the Braves lineup in the next couple of years. He is the prospect you definitely need to keep an eye on.

Diego Benitez

Atlanta's No. 19 prospect is getting his first action at the Low-A level and has certainly impressed across a limited sample size so far. Across four games, Benitez is slashing .286/.375/.429 (4-for-14) with two RBI.

However, if there is one knock against the shortstop it's that he has made six errors on the season for the GreenJackets and that was accumulated over two games. He could see a position change if that continues but his offense looks like it's on the right track.
