Road to Atlanta Podcast: Talking Bryce Ball and more listener mailbag questions

We talk about some of the recent promotions to Rome, Matt talks about his recent look at Gwinnett, and we answer a bunch of listener mailbag questions

MLB: Atlanta Braves at Pittsburgh Pirates Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

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 start off by welcoming Gaurav back into the fold (fear not, Garrett will be back soon as well) and first talk about the recent promotions of Bryce Ball and Michael Harris to Rome. In short, Ball’s promotion was overdue and Harris’ promotion was a pleasant surprise although we aren’t expecting huge things this year (his time will come). After that, Matt talks about his recent trips to see Gwinnett in action to see how Ian Anderson, Tucker Davidson, Cristian Pache, and Drew Waters are looking in Triple-A. We then answered listener questions about the Braves’ current shortstop problem, the depth of the minor league system in the coming years, Freddy Tarnok’s development, and what we expect for the Braves’ outfield in the near future. Enjoy!
