Odom adds to Braves' catching stockpile in Round 13

The Braves sprung for their third catcher of the 2013 First-Year Player Draft, selecting Joseph Odom out of Huntingdon College in Montgomery, Ala., in the 13th round, the 403rd overall pick.

As a junior in 2013, Odom led Huntingdon with 14 home runs and 60 RBIs in 43 games. At 6-foot-2, he became the tallest of the Braves' three catcher prospects taken in the first 13 rounds.
