Team to watch
The Braves offseason retooling brought a large group of new prospects into the system and many will start the season with Triple-A Gwinnett. The rotation will include right-handers Matt Wisler and Mike Foltynewicz, as well as left-hander Manny Banuelos, all of whom came to the organization in offseason trades. Second baseman Jose Peraza, the Braves' top prospect, will look to use his speed to cause havoc at the top of the lineup.

On the rise
All four of the Braves full-season affiliates are loaded with prospects, but Class A Rome has some of the highest-upside players in the system. Shortstop Ozhaino Albies, one of the breakouts stars of 2014, outfielder Braxton Davidson, the Braves' 2014 first-rounder, and left-hander Ricardo Sanchez, the 17-year-old the Braves received from the Angels in exchange for Kyle Kubitza, are all ranked among the club's top 10 prospects and make for an exciting core in the South Atlantic League.
