September is a chance for the Braves to get a glimpse at some of their top prospects for the future and now is that chance for catcher Christian Bethancourt who is the final Braves call-up.

With Brian McCann likely headed for free agency Bethancourt is a candidate to join Evan Gattis as the Braves top two catchers next season. Bethancourt has spent this season in Double-A Mississippi working on his consistency at the plate and responded by hitting .277 (99-for-358) with 12 home runs and 45 RBIs.

Bethancourt will join the Braves today in Miami now that the Mississippi Braves season is over with their loss Sunday in the Double-A Southern League playoffs.

Bethancourt was selected to two consecutive Futures Games as one of the top young prospects in the minor leagues. He’s an athletic catcher with a dynamic arm but the Braves wanted him to continue to progress offensively. This was his second season in Double-A after he hit .243 in 71 games of an injury-riddled 2012 season.
