Atlanta Braves

The Atlanta Braves selected Shreve in the 11th round of the 2010 Major League Baseball Draft. [3] He made his professional debut with the Danville Braves of the Rookie-level Appalachian League that year, pitching to a 2–0 win-loss record and a 2.25 earned run average (ERA). In 2011, Shreve pitched for the Rome Braves of the Class A South Atlantic League, finishing the season with a 5–6 win-loss record and a 3.86 ERA.

Shreve began the 2012 season with the Lynchburg Hillcats of the Class A-Advanced Carolina League, where he had a 4–4 win-loss record and a 2.15 ERA, before receiving a promotion to the Mississippi Braves of the Class AA Southern League, where he had a 2–1 record and a 3.93 ERA. Shreve split the 2013 season with Mississippi and Lynchburg, pitching to a 3–1 record and a 4.43 ERA in Mississippi and a 0–1 record and a 2.75 ERA with Lynchburg. [4]

During spring training in 2014, Shreve altered his approach to increase his pitching velocity. [5] He had a 3–2 with seven saves and a 2.48 ERA.
