Braves' Sean Newcomb: Expected to begin season at Triple-A
Newcomb will likely begin the season with Triple-A Gwinnett, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.
Walks remain the biggest obstacle for Newcomb, but he showed some improvement down the stretch last season at Double-A, posting a 3.7 BB/9 over his final nine starts, markedly better than his overall 4.6 BB/9. If he's able to further hone his command at Triple-A, he could make his major league debut in 2017, but don't expect the Braves to rush one of their top pitching prospects and risk hurting his confidence.
