A mature pitching prospect, righthander David Hale is a local Georgia boy who attended Princeton before being drafted by the Braves back in 2009. Hale's path through the minors has been a long but steady one, recently racking up a 3.77, 1.29 season at AA Mississippi. Since he's continued to improve even while moving up to higher levels, he looks to be on a tidy trajectory for MLB in 2014, as either a long-reliever or starter.

Lost in the hubbub over Kris Medlen and Brandon Beachy, David Hale stands to sneak into the Braves' rotation this April. A mature rookie who is more about pitchability than stuff, Hale should be able to handle the heightened pressure, and may even thrive with the opportunity.
