Baseball Bloggers ‏@baseballblogs New @Tomahawk_Take: Joey Terdoslavich: Meeting Braves Prospect: In the 2010 MLB Amateur Draft the Atlant... http://bit.ly/VnvAHH #BBBA Expand   Reply   Retweet   Favorite  Buffer    More In the 2010 MLB Amateur Draft the Atlanta Braves selected Joey Terdoslavich in the 6th round out of Long Beach State University.  In his first full season of pro ball in 2011 he hit 20 home runs and a league record 57 doubles.  He added a line of .286/.341/.526 in the same league of High A Lynchburg. Joey isn't just another prospect in the Braves farm system, this could be the next star in the making. Back in 2012, Gwinnett hitting coach Jamie Dismuke said, "He can just hit.  I don't think it matter if he's High-A, Low-A, Tripe-A or big leagues, he's going to hit.  He has a real, nice simple approach and he's confident in what he's doing from both sides of the plate." Yes you read that right, both sides of the plate.  Terdoslavich is a 24-year-old switch hitter that has experience playing 1B, 3B and the outfield.  Before the 2012 season he was labeled as the "third baseman of the future" for the Braves with only one and a half seasons under his belt.  Then in 2012, he jumped from Double-A to Tripe-A but in the process didn't have the season he wanted. In the beginning of the 2012 season he was destroying Double-A pitching with a line of .315/.372/.480 with 24 doubles and five home runs through 78 games.  With the jump to Triple-A, he saw a downfall in stats.  In 53 games in Gwinnett, .180/.252/.263 was his line and with only 4 doubles and 4 home runs Terdoslavich showed he needed more time to develop. He was invited to spring training in 2012 with the Braves but in limited playing time at 3B his line was .240/.286/.360.  Now, in 2013, he was again invited to spring training...
