Younger.

Seriously, William has the potential for being a better all-round player. Similar power, but William's hit tool is better. Better behind the plate too, especially in pitch framing.

That's really saying something considering how good Willson is. But this is great. Braves need to just make it through these next 2 or 3 years and then hopefully we'll have our next Lopez/McCann guy that we can pencil in for 10 years.

The Braves have released minor league lefty Chase Johnson-Mullins.

The enormous and well-liked Mullins has been bothered by injuries pretty much his entire pro career.

MLB Pipeline has named Austin Riley as the 3rd best third base prospect in the game right now.

Mike Soroka and Kyle Wright previously made their top 10 right-handed pitcher list, coming in 6th and 9th respectively.
