Adam Maier, Right-Handed Pitcher

May stats: 1-2 record, 2.50 ERA, 20:0 K/BB ratio, .236 AVG against across 18 IP (three starts)

Maier, the Braves No. 17 prospect, has continued what has been a stellar start to his professional career over into May. Across three starts with Low-A Augusta during the month, Maier sports a 1-2 record with a 2.50 ERA and 20:0 K/BB ratio across 18 IP, with opponents also hitting for a combined .236 AVG against.

As mentioned previously, this season has been the first professional action for Maier, with the former 2022 seventh-round pick owning a 2-1 record with a 3.44 ERA and 33:6 K/BB ratio across 34 IP in Low-A, which is seven starts.

Sabin Ceballos, Third Baseman

May stats: .305/.423/.390 slash line, 5 RBI, 5 doubles, 1 stolen base, 14:11 K/BB ratio across 17 games

We conclude with the lone position player to be included, Sabin Ceballos, who is the Braves No. 18 prospect. Across 17 games with High-A Rome, Ceballos is slashing .305/.423/.390 with five RBI and five doubles, while also owning a 14:11 K/BB ratio offensively.

For the season, which is Ceballos' first-ever action at the High-A level, the former third-round pick is slashing .269/.377/.339 with 10 RBI, nine doubles, and two stolen bases. Ceballos will look to carry his success into the summer months with the Rome Emperors.
