Atlanta Braves left-handed pitcher Tucker Davidson could help the Colorado Rockies
One thing that the Atlanta Braves have a lot of (at least in comparison to the Colorado Rockies) is pitching. As they say, you can never have too much pitching but, at least with the way things stand, the Braves have some guys that are young and still might not have a spot on the team or they are veterans who could be on the move for one of the younger players.
Tucker Davidson is part of the former category and he is the first of many pitchers we will look at today considering one of the biggest issues for the Colorado Rockies is their pitching depth, or lack thereof. This was very evident in September when the Rockies had to dip down into Double-A to get somebody to make a start (Ryan Feltner). With Jon Gray leaving, it is even thinner.
Davidson, 25, has only appeared in five regular season games in the majors but he started in game 5 of the World Series. He was injured for most of the season (left forearm inflammation) but he is highly regarded.
He is the Braves #7 prospect and he has a good fastball (grade 60 on a 20-80 scout scale) that is in the mid-90s and an average curve, slider, and changeup.
Essentially, he is similar to Rockies prospect Ryan Rolison in that he has four average to above-average pitches but Rolison has a bit better command and a better curveball.
