WATCH: Braves Prospect Newcomb Ks First Batter Tuesday For Gwinnett

With so much talent in the Atlanta Braves’ farm system, it’s good to check in every now and again.

Sean Newcomb (No. 4 on Grant McAuley’s Braves 2017 Top Prospects List) made his fourth start of the season Tuesday with the 6-foot-5 lefty striking out six batters in a no-decision. He’s 1-1 in 2017 with a 4.19 ERA and averaging better than a strikeout per inning (24 K, 19 1/3 IP).

Hitters have collected a .260 batting average this season versus the 23-year-old prospect and he’s had a bit of trouble with 13 walks.

Still, that first strikeout of the game (shown above) was kind of nasty.

Newcomb’s Tuesday line: 5 IP, 2 hits, 0 runs, 4 BB, 6K.

After the game, Newcomb told MiLB.com he’d adjusted his approach. That resulted in, arguably, his best start of the young season.

“Coming into the game, I was working on my tempo and on attacking hitters more and it felt better,” Newcomb added. “In the first inning, I could kind of feel like I was letting up a little bit too much. It wasn’t like they beat me too much, so I kept the same approach.”
