It didn't take former Clemson pitcher Spencer Strider long to work his way through the Braves minor league system. Sixteen months after being drafted by Atlanta, Strider has been called up.

Strider started the season in Low-A Augusta, and quickly rose through the ranks of the Braves entire farm system. He finished the season with a 3.71 ERA across all four levels with 153 strikeouts in just 94 innings.
