Atlanta Braves: Top Prospect To Watch In 2023

Jared Shuster, the left-handed pitcher and former first-round pick of the Atlanta Braves in the 2020 MLB Draft, is undoubtedly the most exciting prospect to watch for the team this season.

His talent and potential have been evident from his impressive performance during Spring Training, which earned him a spot in the Braves' Opening Day roster.

He features a mid-90s fastball and an impressive slider, making him a formidable pitcher on the mound. Shuster's ability to keep hitters off-balance with his fastball-changeup combination, curveball, and slider has already made him one of the standout players in the organization.

Shuster's dedication and hard work have paid off, as he has shown significant improvements in his game since he was drafted. His impressive control and command of his pitches have allowed him to consistently fill up the strike zone, walking only 2.5 batters per nine innings.

His talent has not gone unnoticed, as he has earned himself a spot in the Braves' rotation this season.

As the Braves look to compete in a highly competitive NL East division, Shuster's performance on the mound will be crucial to their success.

Braves fans and baseball enthusiasts alike should watch out for Shuster as he makes his MLB debut on April 2nd against the Washington Nationals.

Overall, Shuster's impressive performance in Spring Training and his potential as a future mainstay in the Braves rotation make him an exciting prospect for the Braves.

Last season, split between Double-A and Triple-A, the 24-year old compiled a 3.29 ERA, 1.05 WHIP, with 145 strikeouts across 139.1 innings and 27 appearances.
