The Padres shook up the baseball world on Saturday night when they took Eric Hosmer off of the “unsigned” list and signed him to a long-term contract.

NL East Notes: Braves, Nats, Gio, Phillies

The Braves are attempting to add an outfielder, Jon Morosi of MLB.com tweets. With soon-to-be ex-Ray Corey Dickerson now available, Morosi wonders if Atlanta could emerge as a suitor for him.
