It’s every amateur player’s dream to hear your name called on draft day. Tonight at 7: 05 ET, young baseball players from all over the country will have a new uniform to sport, as they will selected by a major league baseball team in the 2013 First Year Player Amateur Draft.
As we wait in anticipation of the MLB First Year Player Draft, we will take a look at all the Gwinnett Braves that have been drafted in the past.
First off, the Braves roster has seen 17 players called on draft day; six of those players were originally drafted by the Braves. Sean Gilmartin out of Florida State University was the highest draft choice, selected in the first round (28th overall) of the 2011 draft, while, Cory Rasmus was picked in the supplemental first round (38th overall) out of Columbus, GA in 2006. Right-Hander David Hale was a third round pick in 2009 out of Princeton University.
With the bevy of talent in the rotation, the G-Braves benefited offensively from the 2010 draft. Todd Cunningham (2nd round) out Jacksonville State University, Joe Leonard (3rd round )out of Pittsburgh University and Joey Terdoslavich (6th round) out of Long Beach State University were all a part of the 2010 class.
The rest of the non-international players were drafted by other clubs. The highest pick of the 11 remaining players was outfielder Brandon Boggs, selected in the fourth round of the 2004 draft out of Georgia Tech by the Texas Rangers. The 2004 class produced infielders Sean Kazmar (5th round by the San Diego Padres out of College of Southern Nevada) and Paul Janish (5th round by the Cincinnati Reds out of Rice University) as well.
The following two seasons would have produced two players apiece. However, in 2005, Cole McCurry was selected in the 31st round out Surry Community College (NC) by the Atlanta Braves, but elected not to sign. The other southpaw picked in 2005 was Ryan Buchter, 33rd round by the Washington Nationals out of Highland Regional Park H.S. (NJ).
In 2006, outfielder Stefan Gartrell went in the 31st round out University of San Francisco to the Chicago White Sox, while Pat Egan went in the 36th round to the Baltimore Orioles out of Quinnipiac College.
In 2008, Tyler Pastornicky heard his name called, as the Toronto Blue Jays picked him in the fifth round out of The Pendleton School (FL). Alden Carrithers was also selected in that draft, going in the 15th round to the Detroit Tigers out of UCLA.
The rest of the G-Braves did not have a partner in their draft class, as Joe Beimel (18th round by the Pittsburgh Pirates out of Duquesne University), Matt Pagnozzi (8th round by the St. Louis Cardinals out of Central Arizona College) and McCurry (43rd round by the Baltimore Orioles out of Tennessee Wesleyan College) all came out solo.
G-Braves take on Rochester tonight, Thursday, June 6 at 6:05 PM.
LAWRENCEVILLE, GA – In a rain-shortened eight-inning game on Wednesday night at Coolray Field, the Gwinnett Braves (25-36) could not find an answer for Rochester right-hander Cole DeVries. The Red Wings’ hurler tossed 7.0 innings of two-run baseball to secure a 4-2 win, sending the G-Braves to their third-straight loss.
DeVries (W, 1-1), who was coming off 5.0 innings of two-run baseball against Charlotte on May 31, was even sharper on Wednesday night. He scattered nine hits, yielded two runs, walked one and struck out two for the victory.
His offense helped him out early. In the top of the second inning, the Red Wings utilized a little small ball to score their first run. Jeff Clement walked and Deibinson Romero singled, putting runners on first and second with no outs. After a bunt by Ray Olmedo, Doug Bernier hit into a fielder’s choice to score the first run of the game.

In the third, the Red Wings regained the lead, taking advantage of two walks and an RBI single by Chris Colabello to extend the lead to 2-1.
Gwinnett’s starter David Hale (L, 1-2), who was on a 45-pitch limit, was pulled just before the Colabello single. He took the loss, allowing two runs on two hits over 2.1 innings. Cole McCurry filled in nicely, giving up just two hits and striking out three over 3.1 innings, keeping the G-Braves within one.
However, the Red Wings would strike in the seventh inning for another run off of reliever Kameron Loe. A leadoff single by Dinkelman set up an RBI double by Oswaldo Arcia, pushing the Rochester lead to 3-1.
The G-Braves answered in the bottom half of the inning. Carrithers picked up his third hit of the game, singling to left-center field. He advanced to third base on a pair of wild pitches by DeVries and scored on sacrifice fly by Paul Janish, reducing the deficit to 3-2.

Scouting the Opponent
The Gwinnett Braves will take the field at 6:05 PM Wednesday night, as they try to avenge their 4-3 loss from the night before.
In their last contest, Sean Gilmartin (3-5) gave up four runs in six innings, striking out five and walking three. The left-hander dropped his second straight game, bested by right-hander Kyle Gibson (5-5) of the Rochester Red Wings. The former Missouri Tiger, hurled six innings, scattering seven hits and allowing two runs. He picked up the victory in the battle of former first rounders.
Tonight the G-Braves will square off against right-hander Cole DeVries (0-1, 12.00). Last season, he made 17 appearances (16 starts) for the Minnesota Twins, going 5-5 with a 4.11 ERA. He posted a strikeout rate of 5.95 K/9 and 1.85 BB/9 walk rate. He was efficient, hurling 87.2 innings, avereging 5.1 innings per appearance with the Twins. He features a four-pitch arsenal, relying heavily on the fastball, while using a slider, curveball and changeup to mix it up. He throws in the high-80s and touches the low-90s, while his slider and changeup sit in the low-80s. He is fly ball pitcher and utilizes his slow curveball (mid-70s) induce the fly out. He proved to be an quality pitcher for the Twins, but broke his ribs in September last season. This season, he is slowly progressing through the minor league ranks, making stops at High-A Fort Myers and Double-A New Britain before reaching Triple-A Rochester.
The Braves will send the lineup below to face DeVries:
LAWRENCEVILLE, GA – In a battle of former first-round picks, Rochester’s Kyle Gibson outdueled Gwinnett’s Sean Gilmartin as the Red Wings (27-32) fended off the G-Braves (25-35) with a 4-3 win on Tuesday night at Coolray Field.

After a strikeout of Dan Rohlfing, Eric Farris doubled, putting runners on second and third with one out.

After going five innings without getting to Gibson, the G-Braves finally answered in the bottom of the sixth, scoring two runs. Ernesto Mejia singled and Joey Terdoslavich walked, putting runners on first and second with nobody out. Two weak fly-outs and a wild pitch moved the runners into scoring position for Paul Janish.

Every G-Braves’ hitter had at least one hit as the club matched season highs in runs (9) and hits (15) in the sweep-clinching win.

The bats backed Corcoran early. In the top of the first, the G-Braves tied a season high for runs in an inning, scoring five runs on six hits against Toledo starter Derek Hankins. With two runners on base, Ernesto Mejia provided the big blow, connecting for a three-run homer off the retaining wall in left field.

The Braves have won three straight games, their longest winning streak since opening up the season 4-0. The bullpen has been a large part of the success, as they have not allowed a run in their last three games and have a 12.1 innings scoreless streak.
In their last series against the Louisville Bats, the bullpen was not as efficient, surrendering five runs in 9.2 innings, yielding eight hits and three free passes.
The bullpen has been a cause for concern in 2013, blowing six saves in 23 opportunities. In 162 innings pitched, the pen’ is 8-12 with a 3.83 ERA. The biggest concern has been the free passes, the relief corps has given up 89 walks in 162 frames.
The Braves enter today’s contest, looking to continue their winning ways and extend their bullpen streak. Prior to the 12.1 shutout frames, the longest streak of the season was 8.0 innings from 4/24-4/27. During that four-day span, the Braves won three of four and were hovering at .500-mark.
With the Braves on an upward swing after their season-high 14-game losing streak, it’s easy to point out that bullpen success is the key to winning for this club.
G-Bites- With an RBI double in the seventh inning, Joey Terdoslavich collected his league-leading 20th double of the year Saturday night. In 2011, he set the All-Time Mark in the Carolina League with 52 doubles. The International League high mark for doubles is 57, set by Jim Holt in 1924.
