Atlanta Braves Non-Tender Three and Keep a Hall of Famer

December 4, 2015 Dan Horton 0

Braves Non-Tender Minor, Ciriaco, and Perez This week, the Atlanta Braves non-tendered three players, essentially granting them free agency. Mike Minor and Pedro Ciriaco were no surprise. However, Eury Perez was. Braves beat writer, Mark Bowman, feels that the Braves could still re-sign Minor. I for one, hope that isn't the case. https://twitter.com/mlbbowman/status/672405809469521922 Minor as…

With the wind down of the 2014 MLB season, and the increase in NCAAF games that matter, I have been a little slack in staying on top of the Atlanta Braves recent activity, especially in regards to off-season moves.  So, if you missed it, here is a recap of their recent moves.   October 25,…

Well, the nightmare that was the Atlanta Braves' 2014 season has ended. The Braves finished the season with a 79-83, finishing below .500 for only the 4th time since 1990. Their swoon was capped by a 7-18 September that ended the remote shot they had at a Wild Card spot. The disappointing result has led…

August 29, 2014 Chris Jervis 0

Mike Minor has seen the inconsistent Atlanta Braves offense in action this season, so he decided to do something about it himself, driving in the game's first run and scoring another on two hits, including a leadoff double in the 8th. His offensive "explosion" sparked the Braves to a 6-1 victory over the New York…

Jason Heyward has hit Jonathon Niese well in his career (.375, 2 2B, 2 HR, 8 RBI), but you can understand if he has butterflies at first pitch in tonight's Game 3 series finale against the Mets at 7:10PM. The last time they faced one another, Heyward was smashed in the face by a Niese…

Braves Spring Training Preview: Pitchers

March 1, 2014 Brent Blackwell 0

A group by group look at the 2014 spring training Braves, starting with a rather large group: the pitchers. Luis Avilan: Avilan had a breakout year last year, sporting a 1.52 ERA buoyed by a .204 BABIP.    While that BABIP almost certainly isn't sustainable, he has had low BABIPs throughout his entire career, which…
