CAtlanta Braves  
June 8, 2015
The Braves have selected Herbert with the 54th overall pick in the 2015 first-year player draft.
Herbert is one of only a handful of catching prospects available in this draft, so the Braves needed to take him fairly early in order to lock up the talented young backstop. He had a commitment to UCLA, but he should be able to be signed away from that. He has a strong hit tool, but as a catcher out of high school there could be a long wait before Herbert is contributing at the big league level.
