Braves can’t complete comeback against Marlins while Augusta’s Justyn-Henry Malloy slugs a pair of homers

We had a full slate of games yesterday as all five of the Braves minor league affiliates were on the docket, including a doubleheader for the FCL team. Unfortunately, the main event on Saturday night – Braves vs. Marlins – didn’t end the way we hoped, however there was still plenty of action down on the farm.

I don’t have time today to do a full report today, but let me let you in on a kid who’s crushing it right now: third baseman Justyn-Henry Malloy. Playing at the Single-A level currently (Augusta), the Braves sixth-round pick from this year’s draft bopped two more homers last night against Columbia, giving him five already this season in just 30 games. The 21-year-old is presently sporting a .271 AVG overall with a 137 wRC+ and looks primed to become another solid prospect outfielder in the Atlanta system. In his last 11 games, Malloy is batting a cool .351 with six XBH. Keep an eye of this dude.
