It’s still 8 months away, but it’s never too early to begin thinking about what direction the Atlanta Braves could go in the 2019 MLB draft
The 2019 draft could end up being the last draft for a long time that the Atlanta Braves have a high pick. This is great news for Braves fans, as it signals a return to prominence after years where the draft was the only thing to look forward to.
With all that in mind, in this article I intend to look at a few prospects who I think would be a good fit for the Braves at pick number 9. Since I haven’t scouted these players myself, I will be referring to a Baseball America article for relevant stats and scouting profiles. This article lists Baseball America’s top 10 college and high school prospects for the draft.
Of course, words don’t always give the best impression of a prospect. So, I did some digging and found a site called mymlbdraft.com. I will link player profiles on the site for any relevant videos for each prospect. In the interest of time, I will be analyzing the 4 players I think would be the best fit for the Braves with their first selection at #9 overall.
Of course, the Atlanta Braves have the privilege of selecting again at 21 overall, so the team could come away with two very good players before the first round is even over.
