Road to Atlanta is our weekly podcast where we discuss all things minor leagues and prospects for our beloved Atlanta Braves. We have relaunched the podcast and it can be found in the same stream with the Talking Chop podcast, so if you subscribe to have easy access to R2A as well. Episodes will go live (most of the time) every Thursday evening and will cover a wide range of topics including top performances from the previous week, deep dives into specific prospects or topics, and lots of sweet guests.

In this week’s episode of Road to Atlanta, we take a step back and take some listener questions as we wait for short-season ball to get fully underway. We discussed plenty of the Braves top prospects including what the near-term futures are for Drew Waters and Cristian Pache, how the 2018 draft class is doing, updating our outlook on Kolby Allard, and discussing some guys whose outlook has diminished this season (if only temporarily).

After that, there were a LOT of questions pertaining to the 2019 draft class and the short-season ball rosters including guys we have our eyes on, who we think could have the longest MLB career, and lots of stuff in-between. Enjoy!
