A decent night from the Braves’ No. 7 prospect
Jared Shuster, the Atlanta Braves’ No. 7 prospect, was promoted to Triple-A and made his debut with the Gwinnett Stripers on Thursday night. The lefty was selected by the Braves in the first round of the 2020 draft. He appeared in 17 games in AA with the Mississippi Braves this season before being assigned to Triple-A Gwinnett. In AA, he posted a 2.78 ERA through 90.2 frames.
Despite a 5-0 Stripers loss, Shuster tossed five innings of three-run ball against the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp (Miami Marlins). He walked two and struck out four. The 23-year-old threw 87 pitches, 57 of them strikes. His fastball and changeup were each sharp, but Gwinnett’s failure to get the bats going resulted in their 50th loss of the season.
