#3 Braves Prospect

Schwellenbach By The Numbers

The former shortstop has massive stuff. Pairing an overpowering fastball with an increasingly sneaky slider, it’s no wonder why fans are labelling him the next Spencer Strider.

Flashes upwards of 99mph with good movement and a sharp bite.

A plus pitch at the next level. When he doesn't hang it, this pitch complements his fastball to perfection.
Changeup
Struggles a bit at times with command and the pitch doesn't miss as many bats as his other two.

Hurston Waldrep

Prospect #3

5/5

An exciting pick who exploded up the farm system towards the end of the year, Waldrep possessed one of the nastiest pitches in his entire draft class. 

JR Ritchie

Prospect #4

4.6/5

Possessing a mid 90s fastball that he can locate, Ritchie works primarily out of an assortment of breaking pitches. By the end of the year, the Braves will likely know what they have in the talented young Washington product.

Owen Murphy

Prospect #5

4/5

Teams loved the 2022 first round pick who chose to play for the Braves instead of being a two way player at Notre Dame. A fastball that sis in the low 90s, his stuff has a way to go if wants to get outs at the big league level.
