Systems Audit: Atlanta Braves
November 27, 2006
1. Elvis Andrus, SS, A. Andrus is young, athletic and loaded with potential. He is still learning how to play at the professional level. Everything about him is potential based.
The Braves have long touted a talented and deep system. That was never more evident than last season when despite a plethora of injuries the Braves were able to still win the division upon the power of rookies. Their now "depleted" system is still a good system though it lacks the depth it once had. A series of good draft picks this year have helped bolster the system with some good young arms. What's more, the system has plenty of talent at scarce positions, catcher and shortstop, that will become very valuable trading pieces in due time.
System Grade: B-
I've never heard of this Eric Campbell guy, but he sounds interesting. Also, where do you see Brian McCann in the Braves future?
I think ultimately McCann will be traded. Comparing Salty to him (when McCann was in AA) Salty is much better and projects to be a better player, lower average but made up for in OBP/SLUG. As McCann is older he will be closer to the breakdown point which comes rapidly for catchers and he will be expendible while the Braves will want to lock down that catcher spot for the few extra years Salty would have before he gets too old.
