5. Atlanta Braves: Mackenzie Gore, LHP, Whiteville (N.C.) High

The Braves could pounce on any player above who slips to them, but even with their wealth of pitching prospects they could still tab another hurler. This athletic 6'2", 180-pound lefty has already impressed scouts thanks to his combination of stuff, projection and polish, but his stock is on the rise thanks to some newfound velocity that's pushed his fastball into the low-to-mid 90s. He backs that fastball with a curveball, slider and changeup that are all at least above-average, with the curve a true plus pitch.
