Braves prospect RHP Touki Toussaint struck out a season-high eight batters over six no-hit innings on Monday for Low-A Rome.
The 2014 first-round pick walked four batters and threw 48 of 85 pitches for strikes in the outing. Acquired from Arizona in late June, Toussaint has pitched to a 3.50 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 7.3 K/9 this season in 64 1/3 innings between the Midwest and South Atlantic Leagues. The 19-year-old right-hander’s control has been shaky in his full-season debut (4.3 BB/9), but he’s been able to offset the free passes with a .193 opponents’ batting average. He’s 2-1 with a 3.20 ERA and 23 strikeouts in 25 1/3 innings since joining the Braves system. Tue, Jul 21, 2015 04:07:00 PM

Braves RHP prospect Touki Toussaint hurled five shutout innings Saturday in a win for Low-A Rome.

The game was called in the sixth inning because of rain. 34 of his 57 pitches went for strikes. Saturday was Toussaint's first win as a member of the Braves organization. The 2014 first-round pick was acquired from Arizona last month. Opponents have hit just .200 against the right-hander in 48 1/3 innings this season.

Braves acquired RHPs Touki Toussaint and Bronson Arroyo from the Diamondbacks for INF Phil Gosselin.

Toussaint is the big fish in this deal, which is basically a salary dump for the Snakes. The 19-year-old right-hander was selected 16th overall last June out of a Florida high school and got a top-100-prospect ranking this past winter by both and Baseball America. Toussaint, a raw hard-throwing right-hander, had registered a 3.69 ERA, 1.179 WHIP, and 29/15 K/BB ratio through 39 innings this season with Low-A Kane County. It's a very nice get for the rebuilding Braves.

Diamondbacks signed first-round pick RHP Touki Toussaint.

Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports that the Diamondbacks signed him for more than the slot value of $2.33 million for the No. 16 overall pick. The team signed a few of their early picks under slot value, so they had the wiggle room to get the deal done.

Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports that the Diamondbacks are close to announcing an agreement with first-round pick RHP Touki Toussaint.

Toussaint, a prep right-hander, was selected No. 16 overall in this month's First-Year Player Draft. He's expected to receive more than the slot value of $2.33 million.

Diamondbacks selected high school right-hander Touki Toussaint with 16th overall pick.

If Toussaint were a little bigger, he probably would have been right there with Brady Aiken and Tyler Kolek at the very top of the draft. As it was, his slight build probably worked against him, with teams wondering how he'll hold up. He has an electric arm; he throws in the 90-95 mph range with the possibility of more velocity as he fills out and his curveball is outstanding.
