Atlanta Braves Morning Chop: Getting Around

The Atlanta Braves are trying to convince people that it will be easy to get to SunTrust Park.  But with about 81 days until Opening Day, it’s fair to suggest that concerns still exist. Admittedly, being an out-of-towner with some challenges to walking long distances, I will be waiting for a while before trying SunTrust […] Atlanta Braves Morning Chop: Getting Around - Tomahawk...

Braves, D-backs in Litigation with Cities Over Stadium Leases

Currently, more than 75% of major-league teams — 23 out of 30, to be exact — play their home games in stadiums publicly owned by a local government entity. Each of these relationships between the franchise and its host municipality is, in turn, governed by a contract specifying the terms under which the government has leased its stadium to the MLB team. As one might expect, disagreements...

The 2017 Atlanta Braves: How Good Will They Be?

Barring something Coppy-esque, the final pieces are set for most MLB teams at this point and it’s a fair question to ask:  how competitive will the Atlanta Braves be as they unlock the doors on SunTrust Field for the first time? What will this Atlanta Braves lineup do?  How will it fare against the denizens […] The 2017 Atlanta Braves: How Good Will They Be? - Tomahawk Take...

Braves 2017 Top-30 Prospects

The Atlanta Braves minor league system is ABSOLUTELY LOADED right now. There are perhaps more premium prospects on this list than have ever existed at one time in the Braves system. The majority of those premium prospects are below double-A, so while there will be good prospects debuting in the majors the next two years, some absolute tidal waves of premium prospects should be approaching...

Braves agree to deals with relievers Vizcaino, Krol

ATLANTA (AP) The Braves have avoided arbitration by agreeing to one-year contracts with relief pitchers Arodys Vizcaino and Ian Krol. Atlanta also acquired infielder Micah Johnson from the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday for a player to be named or cash. The 26-year-old Vizcaino was Atlanta's closer over the first half of 2016, but injuries limited the right-hander to just five...

Report: Brandon Phillips vetoed trade to Atlanta in November

If Brandon Phillips is leaving Cincinnati, he’s doing so on his own terms. According to a report by Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports on Thursday, the Reds second baseman exercised his no-trade clause to block a trade to the Atlanta Braves in November. The trade may still be possible, at least in theory, but talks are said to be “unlikely to revive.” Phillips, 35, is entering the...

Tuffy Gosewisch on Catching

Tuffy Gosewisch isn’t known for his stick. The 33-year-old catcher had a .522 OPS in parts of four seasons with the Arizona Diamondbacks. But he does provide value behind the dish. His defensive acumen — including his ability to work with pitchers — is a primary reason the Atlanta Braves claimed him off waivers earlier this winter. He worked diligently to turn himself into...

Ender Inciarte Is Staying in Atlanta a Little Longer

The pieces are starting to come together for the rebuilding Braves. Though they’ve spent their winter stocking up on veteran starting pitchers and piratey-looking utilitymen, it’s been a winter spent with an eye looking to the future. None of the players whom Atlanta has added are standing firmly in the way of a young prospect, and they all make the team just a little bit better...
