2023 Fantasy Outlook
Vines is one of the most underrated pitching prospects in the minors. The 6-foot-1 righty threw a career-high 140.2 innings last season across Double-A and Triple-A, logging a 1.23 WHIP, 26.5 K% and 7.5 BB%. Vines works with a low-90s fastball, one of the best changeups in the minors, and a third-pitch slider. He doesn't have much margin for error with the fastball, but his changeup generates extreme chase rates and allows the fastball to play up. Atlanta has plenty of rotation depth, with guys like Bryce Elder and Ian Anderson on the outside looking in, but Vines could be ready to enter the fray sometime this summer. Read Past Outlooks

Out with undisclosed injury

April 4, 2023
Triple-A Gwinnett placed Vines on its 7-day injured list Friday with an unspecified injury.
Given that Vines has had success in the upper levels and is on the 40-man roster, his exclusion from the competition for a spot in Atlanta's Opening Day rotation was surprising until the news arrived that he's dealing with an injury. He has an excellent changeup that allows his low-90s fastball and average slider to play up. Vines should be considered out indefinitely until reports emerge about the nature of his injury.
