The Atlanta Braves acquired Kade Scivicque in August in a trade that sent Erick Aybar to Detroit. What sort of player did they get?

Who Is He?

Scivicque was drafted by the Tigers out of Louisiana State University in 2015 in the 4th round. The Tigers started Scivicque in Connecticut of the short-season New York-Penn League, where he tore the cover off the ball to the tune of a .972 OPs, earning him a promotion to low-A West Michigan of the Midwest League.

In total on the season, Scivicque hit .269/.333/.381 with 5 home runs and a 12/29 BB/K ratio over 216 plate appearances between the two levels.

The Tigers sent Scivicque to Lakeland in the high-A Florida State League to start 2016, and he had spent the entire season there before the Braves acquired him. He was assigned to the high-A Carolina Mudcats of the Carolina League when he got in the Braves organization, but he was sent to Mississippi as a reinforcement for the M-Braves playoff run.

While he did not hit well for the Braves affiliates in the regular season after his acquisition, Scivicque had a very solid playoff run for Mississippi, hitting .471 with an RBI and a run scored in four games totaling 17 at bats.

His overall regular season numbers for the year combined with the Tigers and Braves systems were .273/.317/.362 with 6 home runs and a 25/91 BB/K ratio over 492 plate appearances.

Scivicque was chosen as one of the Braves’ representatives in the Arizona Fall League, who has opening day tomorrow, October 11th. Braves prospects are on the Salt River Rafters squad, and their opening game is slated for 6:35 PM MST (8:35 PM Eastern) against Peoria.
