  • Royals' Drew Waters: Bound for Kansas City

    The Royals agreed Monday to acquire Waters, right-hander Andrew Hoffmann and infielder CJ Alexander from Atlanta in exchange for the 35th overall pick in the 2022 first-year player draft, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports. Just a couple years ago, Waters looked as though he might have a long-term future in the Atlanta outfield once he reached the big leagues, but his prospect star has dimmed while Michael Harris has also passed him up in the organizational hierarchy. Waters has continued to languish during his third tour of Triple-A Gwinnett in 2022, producing a modest .698 OPS while striking out at a 27.1 percent clip. In spite of his limited development over the past few seasons, Waters still boasts plus speed and above-average power, and the move to Kansas City could be what he needs to unlock his potential. Waters will likely report to Triple-A Omaha, but he could be in line to get a look with Kansas City later in 2022, especially if Andrew Benintendi is moved prior to the trade deadline and/or if Kyle Isbel and Edward Olivares underwhelm while sharing right field.

  • Braves' Drew Waters: Shakes off hamstring injury

    Waters (hamstring) picked up starts Friday and Sunday with Triple-A Gwinnett, going 3-for-8 with an RBI between the two contests. Waters initially picked up the hamstring injury Tuesday, but after a couple days off, he was cleared to make his return to the Gwinnett lineup as a DH. After getting Saturday off, Waters resumed playing center field in Sunday's 6-5 win over Charlotte, so the hamstring injury doesn't appear to be a concern.

  • Braves' Drew Waters: Hamstring issue returns

    Waters is considered day-to-day due to a hamstring injury, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports. Waters felt tightness in his hamstring Wednesday and has been held out of the lineup the past two games. The injury is particularly worrisome because Waters began the season on the 7-day injured list with a similar issue before being activated Tuesday. He went 4-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and two runs in his season debut but is now in danger of heading back to the injured list.

  • Braves' Drew Waters: Big day in return to Triple-A

    Waters went 4-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored for Triple-A Gwinnett on Tuesday. The outfielder missed the beginning of the season with a hamstring issue, but after a three-game rehab stint at High-A Rome, Waters returned to the Gwinnett lineup with a bang. The 23-year-old's prospect status has dimmed considerably after a rough 2021, but Waters could still factor into the picture for Atlanta at the big-league level if he can build some momentum, and lower his strikeout rate, at Triple-A this season.

  • Braves' Drew Waters: Cleared to return at Triple-A

    Triple-A Gwinnett activated Waters (hamstring) from its 7-day injured list Tuesday. Waters is expected to make his 2022 Triple-A debut Tuesday after he recently completed a three-game rehab assignment at High-A Rome, during which he went 4-for-11 with a home run, a double, a walk, five runs and two RBI. He had been sidelined for the first three weeks of the minor-league season while recovering from a right hamstring strain.

  • Braves' Drew Waters: On shelf with hamstring injury

    Waters is on the 7-day injured list at Triple-A Gwinnett with a hamstring injury, Jonathan Mayo of MLB.com reports. He went 2-for-4 with a home run, a steal, a walk and two strikeouts in two games in big-league camp. Waters last played March 19 and should be considered week-to-week.

  • Braves' Drew Waters: Scratched with hamstring issue

    Waters was scratched from the lineup for Sunday's spring game against the Phillies due to right hamstring tightness. Waters was penciled in to start in right field and bat eighth, but the hamstring issue will keep him off the field. It's unclear how long he's expected to be sidelined by the injury. Jesse Franklin stepped into the lineup in his place for Atlanta.

  • Braves' Drew Waters: Added to 40-man roster

    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

    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

    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

    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

    Waters will be a part of the 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

    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

    Waters was invited to the 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

    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 Braves promoted 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

    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.

  • Braves' Drew Waters: Rolling for Mississippi

    Waters went 3-for-4 with a walk, a double, a triple, a stolen base and three runs scored for Double-A Mississippi on Wednesday. The 20-year-old hasn't homered since May 7, but that doesn't mean he isn't terrorizing Southern League pitchers. Waters is hitting .380 (19-for-50) over his last 13 games with three doubles and an eye-popping five triples, pushing his slash line on the season to .317/.363/.496. Waters is still striking out a lot -- 20 whiffs in that 13-game stretch and a 29.8 percent strikeout rate on the year -- and as a result, he's been streaky in his first exposure to the high minors, but his production when he does make contact has been excellent. Atlanta may want to see the K rate come down before considering a promotion for him, but whether he reaches Triple-A later this year or to begin next year, a 2020 big-league debut could be in the cards.

  • Braves' Drew Waters: Three extra-base knocks in win

    Waters went 3-for-5 with a home run, two doubles, a walk, three runs and three RBI on Sunday in Double-A Mississippi's 7-6 win over Montgomery. The long ball was Waters' first of the season, but the 20-year-old has otherwise been racking up extra-base hits nicely through the first month of the season. The 20-year-old has already collected nine doubles through 72 plate appearances to bring his OPS up to .904.

  • Braves' Drew Waters: Earns call to High-A

    The Braves promoted Waters from Low-A Rome to High-A Florida on Wednesday, Sam Dykstra of MiLB.com reports. Waters should settle into the everyday spot in the Florida outfield that was vacated by fellow organizational top-10 prospect Cristian Pache, who earned the call to Double-A Mississippi on Wednesday. Unlike Pache, who delivers most of his value through defense, baserunning and improving contact skills, Waters projects as more of a power bat in the long run. The 19-year-old paced the South Atlantic League with 32 doubles and 47 extra-base hits while chipping in 20 stolen bases on 25 attempts.
