1 day ago Braves go position player heavy on Day 3 of MLB Draft
Mason Guerra | Jordan Prather-USA TODAY Sports A recap of the picks the Braves made on Day 3 of the MLB Draft. With the third and final day of the 2024 MLB Draft now in the books it is time to take a look at the players the Atlanta Braves have added to their system today. Note that after taking Cam Caminiti and Carter Holton on Day 1 and taking a few likely overslot prep guys on Day 2, the Braves didn’t have a ton of money to spend on their picks for Day 3. No. 341: Patrick Clohisy, OF, Saint Louis Clohisy is the Braves second bat of the draft. He started at Purdue before heading to St. Louis for the last two years and hit really well. He’s a high contact guy that walks more than he strikes out, has some speed and makes that speed play up on bases with his instincts (48-51 SB in last two years). Clohisy has decent gap power potential even if he doesn't have a ton of home run power. This is a solid pick for a guy who has posted OBP’s of .438 and .488 over the last two years and fits a similar type of profile to high Day 3 pick from 2023 Jace Grady as a hit tool and production guy. No. 371: Cayman Goode, RHP, Freeman HS (VA) Goode is another prep arm for the Braves to work with. He is a bit raw, but there is something to build on with him as he has some room to add weight. At present he tops out at 94 MPH and has two breaking balls that he’s able to get a good spin rate on - but they do blend together and they might just have him focus on one going forward. The VCU commit is a bit of a lottery ticket, but well worth the risk at this point in the draft. No. 401: Colby Jones, SS, Northwest Florida State JUCO Colby Jones is a JUCO shortstop that was going to be heading to Alabama last year after putting up two years of solid numbers in JUCO. He’s a guy that may not have any plus tools, but he fits the type of a “gamer” profile. For his career he hit .358/.442/.521 with 13 homers, 48 walks and 43 strikeouts in stat lines that were very similar across both years. The main difference with him this year is he started to steal bases more frequently, going from 7-7 last year to 29-31 this year. No. 431: Mason Guerra, 1B, Oregon St Mason Guerra was a potential very high pick out of high school but chose college. He hasn’t been bad, but he also hasn’t been elite. In addition he has moved off middle infield to the point that he was announced as a first baseman after splitting time there and at third this spring. He’s a kid with pedigree, but also has significant swing and miss in his game. With two okay seasons in the Cape, there aren’t major concerns about his ability to hit with the wood bats. This pick is more of a flier on a once highly touted guy than it is picking the prospect Guerra was once thought to be. No. 461: Owen Carey, OF, Londonberry HS (NH) Carey came on late as a rare New Hampshire prep prospect by going to the Futures League and having an impressive showing with the bat. Carey had 141 plate appearances and hit .308/.390/.458 with four homers and 18 walks to 17 strikeouts. It’s a late rise based around promising hit tool showing after the season - similar to the rise of Nacho Alvarez a couple of years ago even though they aren’t too similar. No. 491: Titus Dumitru, OF, New Mexico State In one year with New Mexico State, Titus Dumitru mashed - although in a very hitter friendly park. Dumitru hit .337/.435/.624 with 28 extra base hits, including 12 homers in 48 games. It wasn’t all an effect of the environment as he had shown signs of power in a summer league last year by hitting six homers there. No. 521: Jacob Shafer, RHP, UNC Wilmington Shafer is yet another massive human being, coming in at 6’8”, 240-pounds. He’s a likely reliever as a pro without massive stuff and is a sinker/slider type of ground ball pitcher. He never put up especially good numbers in his four college seasons mostly as a starter, but he did show a little better in summer leagues through his career when he got the chance to work out of the bullpen. No. 551: Jake Steels, OF, Cal Poly The Braves grabbed another hit tool guy in Jake Steels. In his two years at Cal Poly he has posted OBP’s of .435 and then .498 this year. He improved his stock this year with a real jump in the power, going from two homers and eight extra base hits las year to eight homers and 21 extra base hits this spring. It’s clear that the Braves like to bank on guys with solid hit tools with these later/low-budget picks. No. 581: Dalton McIntyre, OF, Southern Miss McIntyre is a still younger and projectable college outfielder at age-20 (until 7/17). In his year at Southern Miss he hit .388 with a .447 OBP while playing center field. There isn’t much power, and may still not be a ton when he fills in his 6’3”, 175-pound frame, but he’s an athletic kid with a feel for hitting and walks about as much as he strikes out. No. 611: Eric Hartman, OF, Holy Trinity Academy (CAN) Eric Hartman is probably a bit out of the Braves financial reach this late, and the Michigan commit was taken to be a backup in case another overslot guy was to fall through with signing.
