Braves pitching prospect Jason Hursh spun six shutout innings Saturday in a win for Double-A Mississippi.

Hursh threw 48 of his 83 pitches for strikes while generating ten groundouts. The 23-year-old has taken his lumps this year (7.02 ERA, 21 BB, .326 opponent batting average in 33 1/3 innings), but Saturday's outing shows just how good Hursh can be when he puts it all together. Atlanta drafted Hursh 31st overall in 2013 out of Oklahoma State.

Braves pitching prospect Jason Hursh threw 5 1/3 shutout innings for Double-A Mississippi on Wednesday, allowing one single and two walks while striking out five.

Hursh, the 31st overall pick in the 2013 draft, has quietly put together a solid season, holding opposing batters to a .255/.320/.333 line with a 3.42 ERA and a 1.253 WHIP. Despite a mid-90s fastball, his lack of an above-average secondary pitch has limited his effectiveness, and his K/9 is just 4.9. His curveball and changeup both have the potential to be average, which could turn him into a solid No. 3 starter. If his secondary pitches do not improve, he could still be a solid option in a big league bullpen.
