Weekly Prospect Report - 4/11/10

Written by Joe Lucia on .

Time for the introduction of another new feature here at BravesHeart...every week I'll take a look at how the BravesHeart top 40 are doing, along with looking at some other choice performances from the week throughout the team's minor league system. Not everyone will be looked at every week, most notably players in the majors (IE, Heyward) and those in short-season leagues that have not begun play yet. Without any further ado...THE LIST, PLEASE! 2. Julio Teheran – Rome. 6 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 7 K 3. Freddie Freeman – Gwinnett. 4/16, 2 R, 1 2B, 2 RBI, 3 K 4.

Julio Teheran and Christian Bethancourt were absolutely on fire for Rome, living up to the massive amounts of hype poured upon them this weekend. They were aided by a pair of guys drafted last season who didn't do much in short season leagues, Kyle Rose and Jordan Kreke. I'm put off by Rose's lack of a single extra base hit or walk, but he'll be fun while he lasts. Kreke on the other hand showed some decent pop for Rome, and was a member of the insane Danville team from last season. Arodys Vizcaino, acquired in the Javier Vazquez deal this offseason and not ranked on my list because I'm not redoing an entire list for one player, struggled mightily in his first start, which happened to be today. He's still very young and very raw, so lets not draw any conclusions on him yet. Myrtle Beach has a dynamite pitching staff, with a big 3 of JJ Hoover, Randall Delgado, and Zeke Spruill. Former top prospect Cole Rohrbough is there too, and hopefully the mental issues that plagued him last season are over and done with. Those 4 combined for only 2 walks in the opening week of the year, which is a very encouraging sign. The Pelicans offense was on fire this week as well, with 8 of the 12 players who got at bats this week posting OPSes of .875 or higher. The main stud was Yoel Campusano, who's advanced for A+ at 23. A strong performance could lead to a promotion to Mississippi, where he could help aid the M-Braves prospect-barren infield. Also worth a hat tip is Gerardo Rodriguez and his ISO of .400. Well done! And one more thing before I get away from the Atlantic coast...Jaye Chapman struck out 7 of the 10 batters he faced. Just saying. Now we head over to Pearl, and take a look at the M-Braves. What about Cody Johnson, being the three true outcome KING this week. In 12 plate appearances, he hit a homer, struck out 7 times, and walked twice. Yeah...about him decreasing his K rate. Whoops. There wasn't really much else going on in Mississippi, aside from first round pick Mike Minor getting shelled pretty well in his first start of the season. Finally, we make a stop in Gwinnett. Todd Redmond, who as we've always said, thrives on his control, had it going on in his first start of the year and looked like the player he did in 2008 with Mississippi. Several bullpen candidates all did well, headed by Scott Proctor, who will likely claim a spot in the Braves bullpen sooner rather than later. Cory Gearrin however, struggled immensely, while Craig Kimbrel only got into one game. Without any further ado...your hitter of the week is Christian Bethancourt of Rome, and your pitcher of the week is Julio Teheran, also of Rome. Well done, gentlemen. I'll be back next week with another look at our prospects!
