BRAVES RUMORS & GOSSIP

Three Cuts: Braves rally, but fall to Marlins

ATLANTA -- The Atlanta Braves fell behind by four runs early to the Miami Marlins. Good pitching, and a rally in the eighth inning made things interesting, but Atlanta did go down in the end, 6-5. Here are three things we learned from Tuesday's loss to Miami, the second consecutive defeat at the hands of the Marlins: 1. MIKE MINOR'S WOES CONTINUE IN A BIG, BIG WAY Entering...

Andrelton Simmons Dives Backward, Lays Out To Record Force Out (Video)

It was just another day at the ballpark for Atlanta Braves shortstop Andrelton Simmons Monday night, as he executed yet another absurd defensive feat. Simmons’ Gold Glove defense was on display during the fourth inning against the Miami Marlins when he somehow — probably through the use of magic — was able to change directions in a split-second to record a force out that looked...

Braves Shortstop Andrelton Simmons Records an Unbelievable Web Gem

Andrelton Simmons shockingly remains a little-known shortstop, even after winning a 2013 Gold Glove, signing a fat extension last February and making routine web gems like this one. As the Marlins put on a hit-and-run, Simmons glided toward the bag before Jordany Valdespin ripped one to the gap vacated by him. He flawlessly reaches back then contorts his body to record a seemingly...

WATCH: Braves Andrelton Simmons makes diving stop for force play

The Atlanta Braves SS Andrelton Simmons is turning into a routine highlight reel at shortstop.  Reminding fans of Ozzie Smith, Omar Vizquel, or Cal Ripken.  Check out his latest web gem as he is shifted into good position, but smothers the sharp grounder by Jordany Valdespin, then has the awareness to smack the bag with his bare hand on a hit and run hack by Christian Yelich (via...

WATCH: Andrelton Simmons contorts wildly to make play

What…how…I don’t even know. This move by Simmons was like something out of The Matrix. He turned what looked like a picture perfect hit and run into a casual fielder’s choice. Just unbelievable.

Pitcher Profile: Why You Should Never Give Up On Wood

Oh man, it's back to real life!  After an awesome weekend in DC to see my Brewers (I'll share some fun graphics next week), it's back to pitching and back to Wood jokes. And of course I mean the criminally (for a stretch) underrated Alex Wood. Wood starting chucking phenomenally out of the gates, with blistering Ks and ratios.  But when Mike Minor got off the DL and...

Three Cuts: La Stella's bases loaded magic helps Braves rout Phillies

ATLANTA -- A one-hour, 39-minute rain delay cut short arguably Alex Wood's most dominant outing since returning to the starting rotation, but it didn't damper a Braves offense that feasted on shaky Phillies pitching. Atlanta scored two runs after the break , aided by four straight walks issued by Philadelphia. That added to a day that included more bases-loaded magic from...

Braves option Avilan to AAA, add lefty bullpen help

Braves looking to get rid of B.J. Upton 'at almost any cost'

After finally ridding themselves of struggling and disgruntled second baseman Dan Uggla this week, the Atlanta Braves aren't done clearing debris. Uggla was like a gateway release. They're chasing that feeling. They can't stop. They're hooked. The Braves signed Upton to a five-year, $75 million contract before last season, hoping he could bring his stout two-way...

Atlanta Braves officially release Dan Uggla

The Atlanta Braves finally made a move on Friday that most baseball fans saw coming for months now, releasing struggling second baseman Dan Uggla.

Report: Braves suspend Dan Uggla after he's late to game
