The Braves have challenged 18 year old Venezuelan Jose Peraza by advancing him to Danville after hitting .318 with a .772 OPS and 10 steals in 85 at bats in the GCL, and he's scuffled a little, hitting .257 with a .630 OPS in 70 at bats with the D-Braves, but his overall numbers, a .290 batting average, a .708 OPS, 4 doubles, 3 triples, 24 RBI, 26 runs scored, and 19 steals in 155 at bats, combined with his undeniable athleticism are very encouraging for his future. Carlos Franco was 3-17 in his last 6 games, but he was 3-4 tonight, doubling, driving in a pair of runs, and adding a walk for good measure. The 19 year old from the Dominican Republic has a .428 OBP this year, walking in 18.4% of his plate appearances. In his last 3 games, Edison Sanchez has gone 4-13 with 4 doubles and 3 RBI. In his last 5 appearances, Eduardo Castillo has allowed 1 earned run in 9 innings of work. In 23.2 innings over 12 appearances for Danville, Carlos Perez has a 1.90 ERA, a 1.14 WHIP, and 38 strikeouts, good for a 14.4 K/9 rate.

Mauricio Cabrera will start the series finale tomorrow evening.
