Shea Langeliers flashes elite pop time in spring debut

The Braves have not invested a first-round pick in a catcher since the ’80s, so it is needless to say the organization has high hopes for 2019 ninth overall pick Shea Langeliers out of Baylor University. And in what was likely most Braves’ fans first glimpse of him, he did not disappoint. Langeliers did not do much with the stick upon arriving in Rome after being drafted. But while the Braves certainly think he is better than a .652 OPS hitter, his bat is not why they selected him. This...

King Felix sharp in Game 1, Wilson to debut Sunday

No one really knew what to expect on Saturday afternoon as the Braves opened up Spring Training play at their new home in Northport, FL. The soon-to-be 34-year-old Felix Hernandez was tasked with starting the Braves’ Spring slate, and it was anyone’s guess how the veteran’s first pro outing in a non-Mariners’ uniform would go. The question of whether or not Hernandez can revitalize his career or not has been a prominent one in Braves Country recently, and the first start of the year...

Which Touki Toussaint will Braves get in 2020?

Touki Toussaint was a rotation candidate this time last year after a breakout 2018 season. It began to look like the project-pitcher they acquired in a salary dump from the Diamondbacks panned out in the best way possible. However, 2019 was one to forget. He had a failed stint in the bullpen, and that carried over to Triple-A, where he posted 7.49 ERA in 10 starts. He was actually better with the Braves in 24 appearances (23 out of the bullpen, one start) than he was with Gwinnett. A guy who...

Cole Hamels arrives at Braves camp

Cole Hamels arrived at spring camp for the Atlanta Braves on Saturday. Atlanta signed Hamels this offseason to add a veteran option to the starting rotation but Hamels will get a bit of a late start after he irritated his shoulder during an offseason workout.

Hamels is looking to bring some veteran leadership to some of the Braves’ young pitchers. He also discussed where he...
