Touki Toussaint Lighting Up Double-A
Touki Toussaint is rolling at Double-A Mississippi. He's missing bats at an accelerated rate, having struck out 107 in only 86 IP. Toussaint has walked only 36 and sports a 1.19 WHIP.
The Braves committed a robbery when they brought Touissant to Atlanta. They gave up only Phil Gosseli to acquire the athletic right-hander. The Braves also had to eat Bronson Arroyo's contract in the deal. Small price to pay for a potential major league top rotation starter.
The irony in the deal is that the Braves recently signed Gosselin off the waiver wire.
