If his WHIP were better, I'd say we should call him up. Earn your way on the team over the next few weeks, kid! We definitely need the help.

Great night for Anderson! No hits and 14 K's through 7 IP.

Anderson and Jeremy Walker combined for a no-hitter last night. That's the second no-hitter of the season for Braves affiliates after Jasseel De La Cruz turned the trick for A+ Florida last month.

It is the third no-hitter in Mississippi Braves franchise history and the first since Julio Teheran and Ty'Relle Harris combined for one on August 2, 2010.

Dang that's pretty cool that the farm system has had 2 no-no's this year. I'm really excited about Anderson.

Futures Game is today. Pache will start and bat leadoff. Ian Anderson will start for the NL prospects. You can watch the game at 7 PM on MLB Network.

I looked at the lineups, when did they go to an AL vs. NL format? It used to be USA vs. World.

They changed the format this year. It's now AL vs NL permanently. The game is also limited to 7 innings.

That's better. USA vs. World wasn't fair.

Anderson looked great, Pache not so much.

Also his swing looks REALLY long and sluggish to me. He seemed to be late quite often yesterday. I know he was facing the best but am I wrong in thinking that about his swing?

This was 95 MPH from Anderson. The hitter is Wander Franco of the Rays. Franco has K'd 39 times in his entire career of 580 ABs. The guy just doesnt get fooled.

 

LOL look at that late run, unfair.

We released the Midseason Top 30 yesterday. 

If you were grading them both from 1 to 100, what would Langoliers and Contreras be right now?

I absolutely love Ian Anderson's delivery. It's easy, simple, and straight to the point. None of this extra unnecessary stuff that most pitchers throw into their delivery.

Paches offense has been a work in progress. His swing has come a long way but the report was at times he will fall back into his old swing. He has a reputation as a relentless worker so he just has to work back out of it. Pache makes his name as a contact hitter with great defense. The dude can go get them with the best of em in the OF.

So was what I was seeing yesterday what you are talking about? I've heard nothing but good things about him but if that's his regular swing I can't see him doing much at the major league level unless it changes.

Pretty much, his improved swing is what got him where he is. Hes a career .287/.335 in the minors. His power is raw but coming around. Dont expect another Acuna but he can still be a guy that hits .280 with Ender type defense. Honestly, I think Drew Waters is the better pure hitter. That guy can flat swing the bat.

I've heard similar about Waters and how he could overtake Pache. Was just wondering if I caught him trying too hard to impress at the Futures game or if that really was his swing. Certainly wasn't expecting Acuna type power and offense from him but going to be honest I was expecting to hear better than .280 hitter with Ender type defense considering the amount of hype he's been getting.

His bat has been quicker in games. Looked to me like he was trying too hard to impress.

Waters has the added complication of being a switch hitter, which will be very valuable in the long run but he's got work to do on the righty swing right now (opposite of Albies). 

Pache's progress has been steadier, and it's come with pronounced physical changes over the last 2 years. I do think Pache's ceiling as a hitter has been constantly undersold by many.

Just as overall prospects. How close are they and where does our #5/#6 prospect rank as a potential MLB player right now? I'm just trying to get a baseline for what to expect at catcher.
