    Braves' Drew Waters: Added to 40-man roster

    Drew Waters' contract was selected by Atlanta on Thursday.Waters missed some time with a thumb injury in 2021 but hit .240 with 11 homers, 70 runs, 37 RBI and 28 stolen bases across 103 appearances at Triple-A Gwinnett. He'll be protected from the upcoming Rule 5 draft and will likely be in the mix to make his major-league debut at some point in 2022.

    Braves' Drew Waters: Returns to action

    Drew Waters (thumb) started in right field and went 0-for-3 with three strikeouts and a walk Sunday in Triple-A Gwinnett's 6-2 loss to Nashville.Before rejoining the lineup Sunday, Waters hadn't played since June 12 while managing a sore thumb. Though he's apparently healthy again, Waters may need to cut down on his strikeouts before Atlanta seriously entertains the idea of promoting him. After striking out in 36.1 percent of his plate appearances in his first taste of Triple-A in 2019, Waters has only modestly trimmed that rate (31.1 percent) so far this season.

    Braves' Drew Waters: Tending to sore thumb

    Drew Waters hasn't played for Triple-A Gwinnett since Thursday due to a sore thumb, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.Gwinnett hasn't placed Waters on the 7-day injured list, so the affiliate appears to be viewing the outfielder as day-to-day at this point. The 22-year-old switch hitter is slashing .279/.375/.414 with three home runs and eight stolen bases across 128 plate appearances for Gwinnett this season.

    Braves' Drew Waters: Joining big-league camp

    Drew Waters received an invitation to major-league spring training Monday.The 22-year-old doesn't appear to be a favorite to make the Opening Day roster, but a debut sometime this season seems very likely. He's already reached the Triple-A level, though he struggled there in 26 games for Gwinnett in 2019, striking out 36.1 percent of the time en route to an 84 wRC+. He whiffed a far more palatable 25.2 percent of the time at lower levels, however, so it would hardly be a surprise to see him sort things out and push for a big-league job fairly early in the year.

    Braves' Drew Waters: Tabbed for 60-man pool

    Drew Waters will be a part of the Atlanta Braves' 60-man roster, Gabe Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.The Braves' highly-touted prospect appeared in major-league camp this spring, but he struggled with strikeouts as he hit .167 with a 14:2 K:BB over 26 plate appearances before play was suspended. The 21-year-old has solid power and speed, but he'll need to work on his hit tool this season while developing with the team's 60-man roster. His ability to capably play all three outfield positions could lead to him getting some inconsistent MLB playing time this season.

    Braves' Drew Waters: Strikeout concerns in ST

    Drew Waters hit .167 with a 14:2 K:BB in 26 plate appearances in major-league camp.He was not going to make the Opening Day roster even if he had a great spring training, but his 53.9 percent strikeout rate in this small sample made it clear that he still has work to do on the farm. Waters' plus raw power and plus speed make him a very appealing fantasy prospect, but the development of his hit tool in the coming year will be critical. Fortunately, he won't turn 22 until December, so he is ahead of schedule.

    Braves' Drew Waters: Receives big-league camp invite

    Drew Waters was invited to the Atlanta Braves' big-league camp Wednesday.Waters may not be in serious consideration for an Opening Day roster spot, but his debut likely isn't too far off. He slashed a strong .319/.366/.481 in 108 games for Double-A Mississippi last season. However, he still has something to prove at the Triple-A level, as he slashed just .271/.336/.374 (84 wRC+) in a small sample of 26 games for Gwinnett.

    Braves' Drew Waters: Big debut for Gwinnett

    Drew Waters went 3-for-5 with a run scored and an RBI for Triple-A Gwinnett on Tuesday.The 20-year-old made a splashy International League debut after posting a .319/.366/.481 slash line in 108 games to earn a promotion from Double-A Mississippi. Waters is far from a finished product -- he had a 26.7 percent strikeout rate in the Southern League, and he hasn't homered since June 15 -- but if he impresses at the top level of the minors, he'll position himself for a potential big-league debut in 2020.

    Braves' Drew Waters: Heads to Triple-A

    The Atlanta Braves promoted Drew Waters from Double-A Mississippi to Triple-A Gwinnett on Monday, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.Thanks to Austin Riley's advancement to the majors in addition to the sizable power spike he's displayed at Double-A this season, Waters will likely finish 2019 as the top prospect in Atlanta's organization. The switch-hitting Waters could burnish his standing even more with a strong showing at Gwinnett to close out the year, though a September promotion to Atlanta may not be in the cards unless the Braves lose multiple outfielders to injury. Waters wrapped up his time at Double-A with a .319/.366/.481 slash line (146 wRC+) and a 13-for-19 success rate on stolen-base attempts.

    Braves' Drew Waters: Pacing Southern League in BA

    Drew Waters went 2-for-4 with a walk and a run scored for Double-A Mississippi on Thursday.The 20-year-old switch hitter leads the Southern League in batting average at .326, and the rest of his slash line (.373 OBP and .509 SLG) is outstanding as well. Waters is far from a finished product -- he's struck out 98 times in 82 games against 22 walks, and he's needed 15 attempts to steal 10 bases -- but he's still flashing five-category upside, and with Austin Riley's graduation he now stands as the No. 1 fantasy prospect in the Atlanta system.
