I am now working on the Minnesota Twins Top 20 Prospects for 2017 organization report. The next team in line is the Atlanta Braves, to be followed by the Kansas City Royals, Chicago Cubs, Cleveland Indians, and the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Use this thread to discuss the Atlanta Braves organization and farm system. Some possible points for discussion include, but are certainly not limited to:
***The Braves finished at 68-93 as they move forward with the rebuilding project. How satisfied are you with the results so far? Is there any way they can get to .500 in 2017, or is something like 75 wins more realistic?
***Can Mallex Smith show more with the bat than he did in 2016?
***How much power do you think Dansby Swanson will eventually develop?
***How much improvement can be expected from Matt Wisler, Mike Foltynewicz, and Aaron Blair? Is this the foundation of a pitching staff or are they counting on these arms too much?
***Can Tyrell Jenkins and John Gant take larger roles?
***What's your timeline for next wave players like Ozzie Albies and Sean Newcomb?
***As always, share your Braves system sleepers.
