Braves Minor League Notes

on .

It's that time of year again. Short-season baseball has started. While I am trying to find the Braves draftees that have been signed, the front office seems particularly tight-lipped about it. I have managed to put together this list of players who have already signed. 3B Jon Gilmore (Supplemental), 1B Freddie Freeman (Second Round), SS Brandon Hicks (Third Round), RHP Cory Gearrin (Fourth Round), RHP Dennis Dixon (Fifth Round), SS Michael Fisher (Sixth Round), LHP Tim Ladd (Ninth Round), RHP Nick Fellman (Twelfth Round), OF Chad Maddox (Thirteenth Round), RHP Caleb Brewer (Fourteenth Round), SS Randy Gress (Eighteenth Round), OF C.J. Lee (Twentieth Round), OF Kuyaunnis Miles (Twenty-First Round), and LHP T.J. Wohlever (Thirty-Second Round) In addition, I have heard rumors that the Braves are also close to signing first round pick Jason Heyward and second round pick Josh Fields, who is a Scott Boras client. Freddie Freeman probably has the highest upside of the bunch. He's a 17-year old 6'5" first baseman with huge power potential from the left side of the plate. I'll try and get up any more information to you as soon as it comes my way. In some other minor league news, the Futures Game rosters were announced today and the game will have two Braves shortstops going against each other with Elvis Andrus making the world team and Brent Lillibridge being selected to the US team. The futures game is an All-Star game for prospects that is part of the All-Star gameā€  and will be played on Sunday, July 8, in San Francisco.
