Former Braves Start Season In AAA

There are five former Staunton Braves in AAA to start the 2018 season.

Three, Austin Adams (Syracuse), Kyle McGrath (El Paso) and Max Povse (Tacoma) are looking to get back to the Big Leagues. All three made their Major League debut a year ago: Adams with the Nationals, McGrath with the Padres and Povse with the Mariners. Two more have moved closer to the show. Chris Huffman is a McGrath’s teammate in El Paso. Sam Howard is pitching in Albuquerque.

Another former Braves player may soon be in AAA. Scott Copeland was just signed to a Minor League Contract this week by the Mets and is in extended spring training. He will most likely be assigned to AAA Las Vegas.
