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.

Back end of a top 100 I'd imagine. 85-105 I'd say.

Can't wait for the Acuna - Pache - Waters outfield era to begin.

Hope the Braves don’t screw it up by trading one of them (Pache or Waters). , but it would be so ATL like to do so.

I never fathomed we would see Waters this season. But we might in September. 

Very doubtful. Hes not on the 40 man roster. Duvall and Alex Jackson will likely be the bats added.

I guess I see adding jackson bc he is a 3rd catcher. But he may be a batvin name only. 

 

You are prob right since he isnt on the 40. But he is starting to bang on the door.

It's much more likely we'll see Pache in September than Waters. Pache will need to be added to the 40-man roster this off-season anyway, Waters will not.

But yeah, AJax and Duvall will certainly be up if they are still in the organization.

Is there a reason why they aren't moved to AAA?

I think Pache and Ian Anderson moves up within the next couple days.

No confirmation yet but Pache was reportedly promoted to AAA last night. Drew Waters is also rumored to be heading to AAA today. Baseball America also recently awarded Waters the title of best bat in AA. Pache was given best defense and best arm in AA. 

I'd also highly recommend going and watching them while you can in a minor league atmosphere. Got to see both in Chattanooga earlier this season and they didnt disappoint. Waters really impressed me with his bat, tough out every AB.
