    Strider clearly isn't being challenged, he needs to be in AA.

    Interesting to see if they start letting him use all 3 pitches and focus on starter development. Or do they see his as an impact RP this year or next. Based on everything I've read you'd think starter and expect him to be in AA until this time or 1/2 time next year. Then 1/2-1/2 years in AAA. But the Braves do weird stuff with pitchers, see all of them. Wilson being pulled up so young I'll never understand.

    Since strider is the next DeGrom, it just wouldn’t be fair to let him throw his complete arsenal.

    I wouldn't say he's the next deGrom... degrom is a little better hitter

    Pretty sure Strider is as good as Acuna. Going to be hard not to play him everyday.

    In all seriousness. How hard is strider throwing. Is there a radar reading on him yet.

    I seem to remember reading somewhere that he's sitting in the mid-90s and can reach high-90s.

    JT as well when he was assigned to AAA in 2012. He slid down several prospect lists that season because the Braves wanted him working primarily on his change I think and he got lit up.

    FWIW Strider's #5 on this week's BA Hot Sheet.
    Has there EVER been a statement and question a certain someone should absolutely never have made and asked publicly more than...

    Kinda pathetic to see yourself as a message board knight in shining armor. How impotent does someone have to be in real life to resort to playing hero on a message board?
