Braves Prospect Homers From Both Sides Of The Plate In Same Game

Videos by OutKick

Last night, Braves prospect Drew Waters hit his first long ball of the season, an opposite field shot from the right side of the plate.

Impressive, yet we’ve seen it before. Except Waters would step up to the plate in the top half of the eighth and go deep — from the left side. Holy moly…the Braves might have something here on their Triple-A affiliate. Can he pitch?!

Now that Marcell Ozuna has agreed to a four-year, $64 million deal this offseason, Waters couldn’t play left field. Which leaves center field as his only option because Ronald Acuna Jr. isn’t moving for any prospect, I don’t care how many homeruns he hits in a game.

Only one problem: Cristian Pache, one of the Braves’ best prospects, is slated to play center field. These are good problems to have, and it sets the team up to deal Ozuna down the road and shift that exiting salary to some starting pitcher. Braves country knows how bad they need that.

We hope to see Drew Waters in the league soon. Kids doing things we rarely see these days.
