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. Thu, Aug 7, 2014 10:40:00 AM
