It really looks like all the patience ajd work with Tarnok is really starting to pay off!!
This young man has been nothing short of filthy!! I remember when he was drafted, with him being so raw, yet so talented, some people were giving him comps to a certain Met named DeGrom.
Now, no one can ever live up to that, it’s nearly impossible; but he is certainly carving out his own fine path towards the big leagues. He’s going to be a really gun one to watch, and I’ll be honestly surprised if he isn’t on any top 100 lists by the end of the season, if he keeps this up..

In my opinion....
They’re pretty low on Vaughn Grissom.
Yes, I know right now we are all seeing Grissom, and his game, with rose-colored glasses, but I’ve always thought the Braves got a steal from the moment he was drafted and signed.
He’s answered alot of questions about his glove, and now, other than adding muscle and a change to his physique, he should be able to stay at SS, if the Braves need him to, and he should be able to give the Braves at least an average glove there.
He’s also displayed a better hit tool than most gave him credit for, he’s displayed a better eye at the plate, and he’s developing alot of his question marks at alot faster a pace than most originally thought.
That advanced level of progression, and his ability to adapt on the fly, while producing and making some adjustments I think truly speaks volumes to his future success at the ML level.
Maybe, I’m being a bit of a homer with Grissom, but I easily see the Braves with an average to slightly above average regular, at a minimum of three possible positions. I think his ability to add some power, and improve his walk rate, while staying at SS will ultimately decide his eventual ceiling, but I definitely at least see an intriguing prospect that’s going to be really fun to watch develop and grow over the next few seasons..
