Sonny Days Ahead for Atlanta?

Sonny Days Ahead for Atlanta?

The Braves haven’t made a big deal yet – and I’m still in the feels about the Jonny Venters one, which Stephen went over a couple of days ago. But to this point, Atlanta hasn’t wowed anyone with a big pick-up. They’re certainly has been rumors. Zack Wheeler, Adrian Beltre, Chris Archer, Nick Castellanos, and Marcus Stroman have all been thrown around as possible players the Braves have interest in. I looked deeper into Stroman…

Braves Trade for Jonny Venters

Braves Trade for Jonny Venters

Not long after Atlanta got torched by the Dodgers 8-2 on Thursday night, Alex Anthopoulos decided to make his first move of the trade deadline season. The Braves official Twitter account just sent this: The Atlanta #Braves today acquired LHP Jonny Venters from the Tampa Bay Rays in exchange for an international signing slot. Venters, 33, went 1-1 with a 3.86 ERA (6 ER/14.0 IP) in 22 games, one start, for Tampa Bay this season.…

Today, we’re talking trades with the non-waiver deadline just a couple of weeks away. The Braves are in position for, at worst, a run at the Wild Card but have struggled since a hot start landed them in first place in the East. With the exception of defense, there have been problems in every facet of…

Transaction Tuesday: Chad Sobotka Gets Closer

Transaction Tuesday: Chad Sobotka Gets Closer

A pretty quiet week transaction-wise for the organization with only one move in the majors and three other teams showing zero transactions for the previous week. Nevertheless, we did see a couple of the Braves’ best relief prospects get a push up the ladder while a few other unpopular veterans moved down a level. Like I started last week, I’ll finish this recap by looking at a former Brave who was involved in a transaction…

2018 Midseason Top 50 Braves Prospects

It’s the All-Star Break, the recognized ending to the first half of the season. But rather than focus completely on the major league squad, let’s take a look at our 2018 Midseason Top 50 Braves Prospects. We got some graduations, some releases, and a lot of movement in our Top 50 compared to the preseason. Unlike the preseason Top 50, we won’t stretch this out into a series of articles and review each player. There’s…
