Last year in the amateur draft the Braves selected tall right-hander Kyle Cofield, from Southside High School in Rainbow City, Alabama.
The six-foot-five, 195 pounder pitched in ten games for the Gulf Coast League Braves. Cofield is currently at Extended Spring Training in Florida and will compete for a job in Danville's bullpen this spring.
