When someone takes the mound in an Atlanta Braves uniform something apparently happens that makes them great. Year in and year out they just produce great starting pitching and bullpen work better than anyone. This year they lost three starters before the season, patched together a rotation and have by far the best numbers in the game so far. I guess with talent like these five top ranking pitching prospects, we shouldn't be surprised.
Hale was able to start the season in MLB this year and has done a great job so far. He has a 2.93 ERA and 1.63 WHIP. That might lead to him being moved around somewhere else when Mike Minor and others return to the rotation but he has done very well.
Through four starts in 2014 for double-A, Graham has regained all momentum towards being one of the better pitching prospects in the game. He has a 1.17 ERA and 1.04 WHIP.
Three starts for Cabrera have seen him keep his name solidly among the top overall prospects for the Braves. He has a 2.62 ERA and 1.45 WHIP.
Hursh might be the fastest moving pitching prospect this decade for the Braves as he was drafted in 2013 and is already succeeding at double-A. Through four starts he has a 2.95 ERA and 1.47 WHIP.
Sims is just getting started and the Braves are bringing him along at a normal pace which suggests they see something very special in his ability. The 2014 season has done little to prove that wrong with a 0.95 WHIP through four starts.
