Box Score

The Mississippi Braves are in town this week for a five-game set with Chattanooga. Game one is this evening (Monday) at AT&T Field  at 7:15 p.m.

 

The M-Braves have Atlanta's #4 prospect, 20-year old Cristian Pache, on their roster.

 

MLB Pipeline has this to say about Pache:  "Pache might be the best defensive outfielder in the Minor Leagues at present and once he gets to the big leagues, he'll immediately join a list of elite-level center fielders. His speed allows him to cover a tremendous amount of ground and his plus instincts, reads and routes allow that to play up even more. He has a gun for an arm to go with it that would more than work in right, though there is zero question he's a Gold Glove caliber center fielder long-term. Pache's straight running speed is close to top of the scale, but he's yet to translate it effectively in terms of stolen bases. Pache's power is just starting to show up, at least in terms of extra-base ability, and he's showing signs of making adjustments to his swing that could eventually allow him to approach average power in the future.

If he can continue to refine that swing and his approach, Pache has the potential to be an All-Star caliber player. Even if he falls a little short of that, his ability to make contact, his speed and his outstanding defense point to a long Major League career."
