Tomahawk Chops: Daily Atlanta Braves News Clippings For Tuesday, March 13th

The young shortstop that everyone is talking about.

Your one-page daily morning overview of Atlanta Braves news:

Braves pitchers issue 11 walks, 5 by Beachy | Atlanta Braves
"It’s pretty bad, pretty terrible," Beachy said of the walks. "I was struggling to throw strikes at times. Trying to make adjustments and they just aren’t coming as quickly as I need them to."

Prado surges as losing streak continues | Atlanta Braves
While most of the Braves offense has struggled, left fielder Martin Prado has excelled by getting back to what he did during his All-Star season in 2010. He’s hitting balls up the middle or to the opposite (right) field, instead of trying to pull them like he did when he slumped last season. "That’s my main approach right now, just trying to see the ball well and hitting the other way," said Prado, who is 7-for-10 with two doubles and three walks in his past three games.

Braves shortstop prospect Simmons is causing stir | Atlanta Braves
The idea seemed highly unlikely when spring training began. But with each terrific play he makes and every self-assured stride he takes, Braves shortstop prospect Andrelton Simmons looks more like a major leaguer.
