Braves go with righty Gunther in Round 12

After selecting back-to-back third basemen to cap off Day 2 of the 2013 First-Year Player Draft, the Braves selected their second consecutive right-handed pitcher to start off Day 3, taking Charleston Southern pitcher Ryan Gunther in the 12th round, the 373rd overall pick.
