The Padres are the best trade suitors for Braves’ needs

Your eyebrows may have raised a bit when you read this. Are the 66-win Padres really the best trade suitors for the Braves? Out of all the teams in the MLB? The answer right now is most definitely yes. With Nick Markakis now on the free agency market, the Braves have a big hole to fill in their outfield and in the lineup. Though he faltered in the season’s second half, Markakis has been the most consistent Brave not named Freddie Freeman in his four years with the team. With the Braves...

Let’s take a look at how the Rule 5 Draft can help (or hurt) the Braves

Will the Braves add someone for the fifth-straight year in Thursday’s Rule 5 Draft? More importantly, will they lose anyone?

‘Long-term picture’ influencing decision-making

The Braves have an obvious desire to add major league talent this offseason, but according to club officials there is a reluctance within the organization to go “all-in” regarding prospect capital.

Report: J.T. Realmuto appears very much in play for Braves

The J.T. Realmuto saga appeared to have ended when the Braves signed Brian McCann to a one-year deal earlier this offseason. Contrary to that belief, Craig Mish has stood firm that the Braves are still among the most interested for the All-Star catcher. Jon Heyman confirmed the rumors not too long after. The Marlins have placed a high price tag on Realmuto, and rightfully so, as he’s the best catcher in baseball, only 28 years old and still has multiple years of control remaining. That’s...

Braves tweet joke that Ronald Acuna Jr. homer caused Georgia earthquake

Georgia was shaken early Wednesday morning by an earthquake, and the Atlanta Braves took to Twitter to joke that the tremors were caused by a home run from superstar slugger Ronald Acuna Jr. An earthquake measuring at a 4.4 magnitude was recorded by the U.S. Geological Survey at approximately 4:14 a.m. local time. Its epicenter was located near Decatur, Tenn., but was felt in Georgia as well. An aftershock measuring 3.3 magnitude also was felt about 13 minutes later. The Braves took to...

Braves bench could be a strong point in 2019

There’s no denying the main thing that separated the Braves from some of the truly elite teams out there, like the Dodgers and Red Sox, was their lack of depth. In their rotation, they didn’t have enough reliable pitchers that could handle the heat of the postseason. The bullpen needed more quality arms at the back-end, but most noticeably, their bench offered them little to nothing. Preston Tucker and Ryan Flaherty were key to the Braves hot start before fading into the abyss by June....

Report: Braves considering contract offer for A.J. Pollock

The Braves have discussed offering a contract to free agent A.J. Pollock, The Athletic’s David O’Brien writes (subscription required). Atlanta is known to be casting a wide net for outfield help so it isn’t any surprise that Pollock is one of the team’s many options under consideration. The 31-year-old would, however, be one of the costlier names available, both in terms of money — Pollock is reportedly looking for an $80M deal — and in draft compensation, as Pollock rejected a...

Braves News: Anthopoulos staying patient, Rule 5 Draft, Fred McGriff and more

It doesn’t look like the Braves will make a move before the Winter Meetings end on Thursday.

The Winter Meetings continued on Tuesday and for the Atlanta Braves the word of the day is patience. General Manager Alex Anthopoulos came in saying that he likes to use the meetings as an opportunity to discuss a number of things but he prefers to do business either before or after. He has stuck to that as the team has apparently discussed plenty of scenarios with other teams but has yet to pull...
