Brandon Drury was named the Co-MVP of the Appalachian League and Baseball America named him the league's #2 prospect.

Danville fell short in its championsip bid, but three members of the team still distinguished themselves, as Baseball America named third baseman Brandon Drury the 2nd best prospect in the Appalachian League, right handed pitcher JR Graham the 8th best prospect, and shortstop Nick Ahmed the league's 18th best prospect.

Dury was named the Appy League's Co-MVP, and the 19 year old led the league with a .347 batting average and rapped out a league high 92 hits. He finished with 23 doubles, 8 home runs, 54 RBI, and a .891 OPS. The Braves selected him in the 13th round of the 2010 draft. Graham led the league with a 1.72 ERA and was second with a 1.13 WHIP, finishing with a 5-2 record and 52 strikeouts in 57.2 innings. The Braves selected the 21 year old out of Santa Clara in the 4th round of this year's draft. Ahmed hit .262 with a .725 OPS, 13 doubles, 4 homers, 24 RBI, and 18 stolen bases.
