2006 Draft - Podcast: Tim Gustafson Interview

The Braves Show's Bill Shanks talks with Tim Gustafson, Atlanta's ninth round pick out of Georgia Tech. Gustafson is the last unsigned Braves' draft pick, and he talks about possibly signing with Atlanta.

Tim Gustafson was expected to be drafted in the top three rounds of this June's draft. But a shoulder impingement clouded his draft status a bit. The Braves took the former Parkview High School star in the ninth round, and Gustafson had to pitch in the Cape Cod Summer League to prove he was healthy and ready to be a pro player. Gustafson has until next Monday to sign with the Braves or return to Georgia Tech. The right-handed pitcher talks about his season, the draft, and about possibly joining the Braves' organization.

Bill Shanks is the author of Scout's Honor: The Bravest Way To Build A Winning Team, a look inside the Braves‘ traditional scouting and player development philosophies. He can also be heard regularly on the Braves Radio Network. Email Bill at thebravesshow@email.com.
