Prospect Notes: Joey Terdoslavich, OF-1B, Braves


Joey Terdoslavich, OF-1B, Atlanta Braves:
The Atlanta Braves promoted Joey Terdoslavich to the major league roster yesterday, replacing the injured Jordan Shafer. A sixth round pick in 2010 from Long Beach State University, Terdoslavich was hitting .318/.359/.567 in 85 games for Triple-A Gwinnett, with 23 walks and 65 strikeouts in 351 plate appearances. He was something of a hot prospect in 2011 when he hit .283/.341/.526 with 52 doubles and 20 homers for High-A Lynchburg, but he had problems when attempting to make the steep jump to Triple-A last spring, where he hit just .180 in 53 games.

He went back to Double-A for the second half and rebounded (.315/.372/.480 in 78 games), then returned to the International League for 2013 and has done well. Part of the problem last year was a failed attempt to make him a third baseman, but he fits best as a corner outfielder/first base type. He is technically a switch-hitter but is much more effective from the left side (.992 OPS this year) than the right (.686).
