Braves 2011 Minor League Players Of The Year

The accolades continue to mount for Julio Teheran.

Talking Chop was the first to let everyone know that Joey Terdoslavich was the Braves 2011 Player of the Year -- a whole four days ago. (Come on lame stream media, how you gonna let a blog scoop you like that!) At that time we speculated that Julio Teheran would be named the Pitcher of the Year (not a hard leap), and he has in fact been named the Pitcher of the Year.

Here is the just-released full list of Players and Pitchers of the Year from every level of the Braves system:

Level Pitcher of Year Player of Year
Organizational Julio Teheran Joe Terdoslavich
Gwinnett Braves Mike Minor Stefan Gartrell
Mississippi Braves Randall Delgado Tyler Pastornicky
Lynchburg Hillcats Zeke Spruill Andrelton Simmons
Rome Braves Chasen Shreve Evan Gattis
Danville Braves J.R. Graham Brandon Drury
Gulf Coast League Braves Yean Carlos Gil Felix Marte
Dominican Summer League Oriel Caicedo Jose Peraza

Nice of them to misspell their own player's name, it's really Jean Carlos Gil, not Yean. Unless, MiLB has it wrong.

No real surprises on this list. Chasen Shreve is not a name you hear a lot, though there weren't many good pitching performances at Rome this year. We should keep our eye on all of the prospects on this list below Rome. Graham and Drury will likely make many prospect lists (they make ours), and I'm really high on Gil and Peraza. Marte runs together in my mind with Carlos Franco -- they're both similar players, and both from the same town in the DR. Caidedo is a pitchability prospect from Panama. Mauricio Cabrera is the big arm in the DSL for the Braves, though he didn't hit his stride until the end of the season. Both Cabrera and Caicedo (and Peraza) are just 17 years old.

Gattis is an amazing feel-good story, and someone on whom a lot will likely be written this off-season. He's older, but he went the Josh Hamilton route, and could become a great prospect if he can find a position.
