2012 MLB Draft: Braves Wrap Up Third Day With High School Players

The Atlanta Braves have completed their 2012 MLB Draft after three long days of selections. The club did a nice job adding a mix of pitchers, infielder and outfielders, and we can only hope this draft class helps restock a depleted farm system.

31st Round: Matt Kimbrel, right-handed pitcher, Southern Polytechnic State, 6'0 185lbs

32nd Round: Adam Grantham, right-handed pitcher, Kenneth HS (MO), 6'1 180lbs
