2015

Recurring shoulder troubles have dimmed Graham's prospect star considerably since the start of the 2013 season, but the right-hander is expected to be fully recovered in time for spring training. In 27 appearances (19 starts) at Double-A Mississippi in 2014, Graham posted a dismal 5.55 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 50:26 K:BB, with a 8.20 ERA and .320 BAA in 13 second-half outings. Never an overpowering pitcher, Graham's GO/AO also dropped considerably, from 2.04 in 2013 to just 1.32, but if truly healthy, Graham should bounce back and could eventually become a spot-starter or temporary rotation fill-in option at some point in 2015, though his inability to miss bats at a high clip limits his fantasy upside. Acquired by the Twins in the Rule 5 draft in December, Graham may get his first taste of the big leagues as a reliever in 2015.

2014

Shoulder troubles sent Graham to the shelf in mid-May, and the right-hander didn't even step onto a mound until five months later. The Braves are expecting the rather cautious approach to pay off, and that Graham will be ready for the start of spring training. The 24-year-old, widely considered one of the top pitching prospects in the Braves' organization, succeeds in pounding the strike zone and inducing a high volume of groundballs (2.24 GO/AO in 2012), so even with the pitching depth in Atlanta, Graham could potentially earn one of the final rotation spots.
