The Atlanta Braves have no shortage of options for their starting rotation. Bryse Wilson could be one underrated rotation option for an increasingly young Braves roster.
Bryse Wilson had an impressive debut for the Atlanta Braves last season before fading off the roster. His first start was impressive and showed just how good of a pitcher he can be. With one of the best farms in baseball, he is often forgotten about despite his talent.
In his debut, Wilson pitched 5 scoreless innings showing a great ability to pitch. While his stuff may not be the best in the Braves system he is easily one of the best controlled of the Braves young pitchers.
He pitches in the truest sense of the word attempting to outsmart his opponent not simply throw it past them. While 5 innings is a very small sample size it should have been more than enough evidence for the Braves to give Wilson another chance.
Coming into 2019 there is at least one rotation spot open, one Wilson could potentially fill if given a fair shot. Looking at the other options Atlanta has a difficult decision to make with three top pitching prospects on the cusp of being ready to start every five days.
For Atlanta, it comes down to who they believe gives them their best chance to win every fifth day. That could well be Bryse Wilson who showed impressive poise and great instincts on the mound.
Wilson will need to impress during Spring Training if he wants any shot of making the Opening Day Roster. It seems more likely Wilson will start the season in Triple-A pitching valuable innings to gain experience.
Wilson is still only 21-years old and will continue to get better this season. A season that should see Wilson earn his first stint as a Major League starter for the Braves.
