    A few notes: Brian Snitker has been signed to a contract extension through 2023 with a team option for 2024. Terrance Gore, an OFer, has been signed to a minor league contract. Jack Mayfield, who was...
  2. Sticky: That and Markakis could be problematic from the...

    That and Markakis could be problematic from the standpoint that he would need to be a backup outfielder for Atlanta and, ideally, the team's backup OFers would have an ability to play multiple spots...

    The Braves have DFA'd Jack Mayfield to open up a roster spot for Heredia.
  4. Sticky: The Braves have claimed OFer Guillermo Heredia of...

    The Braves have claimed OFer Guillermo Heredia of waivers from the Mets.

    In retrospect, giving $11 million on a 1 year deal to Smyly really wasn't necessary, as he almost certainly could have been had for less money.
  6. Sticky: Lamb's a lefty batter, so he comes with the usual...

    Lamb's a lefty batter, so he comes with the usual splits that would require him to be kept away from lefty pitchers. An .800+ OPS against RHP is certainly fine and usable on the bench:

    Career vs...

    Travis Demeritte has been sent to AAA. Apparently the move allows the Braves to keep him in the org but frees up a 40 man roster spot.
  8. Sticky: Per Snitker - Victor Arano has apparently not...

    Per Snitker - Victor Arano has apparently not arrived in camp yet due to visa issues.
  9. Sticky: Julio Teheran signed a minor league deal with...

    Julio Teheran signed a minor league deal with Detroit with incentives. He's certainly fallen a long way.
  10. Sticky: Mark Melancon's deal with the Padres will pay him...

    Mark Melancon's deal with the Padres will pay him $2 million in 2021 and includes an option for 2022 with a $1 million dollar buyout. I am really shocked that the Braves weren't willing to give him...

  12. Sticky: Not a bad option to have coming into camp. He's a...

    Not a bad option to have coming into camp. He's a lefty and has the usual splits that you would expect:

    Career against RHP: .269/.347/.442/.789
    Career against LHP: .244/.307/.364/.671

    He's...
  13. Sticky: I am nervous as well. The lineup is the same and...

    I am nervous as well. The lineup is the same and the rotation is certainly stronger (Charlie Morton + healty Soroka + Smyly) but I am definitely concerned that the bench could be a major weakness. I...

    So, pretend that AA doesn't add anyone to the bullpen between now and opening day. How confident would you feel with the bullpen as it currently exists?
  15. Sticky: I kind of wanted him as a backup outfielder. I...

    I kind of wanted him as a backup outfielder. I don't know how he rates defensively but it's completely possible that he outperforms Ender with the bat in 2021 and he just went for a minor league deal.
  16. Sticky: I know that is a joke :p but I will bite: I would...

    I know that is a joke :p but I will bite: I would prefer for someone like Mayfield to win the last spot on the bench rather than Sandoval because at least with Mayfield there is some unknown element...
  17. Sticky: Jed Lowrie just signed a minor league deal with...

    Jed Lowrie just signed a minor league deal with the A's. I actually totally forgot about him as an infield bench option, as he's been battling injuries and hasn't really played since the end of the...
  18. Sticky: How low of a batting average are you willing to...

    How low of a batting average are you willing to tolerate from Alex Jackson if he becomes the backup catcher? He's a career .233 hitter in the minors.
  19. Sticky: The bench definitely looks bad right now. If this...

    The bench definitely looks bad right now. If this was opening day, what would be the bench look like?

    Camargo
    Ender
    Ehire Adrianza
    Jack Mayfield
    Alex Jackson

    Hopefully they can find an...
  20. Sticky: I am kind of surprised that the Braves weren't...

    I am kind of surprised that the Braves weren't interested in Steve Cishek, as he just settled for a minor league deal with an invite to spring training from the Astros yesterday. His numbers in 2020...

    MLB is making physical changes to the ball which is expected to reduce offense in 2021:

  22. Sticky: So, assuming that Ramirez isn't really available,...

    So, assuming that Ramirez isn't really available, the bullpen would seemingly be next up on the list to be addressed. Melancon, Greene & O'Day are all free agents from last year's bullpen. How many...
  23. Sticky: I am pretty happy as a fan with that average...

    I am pretty happy as a fan with that average annual salary from the team's perspective. If he will just stay healthy and we just get the DH in 2022 :)
  24. Sticky: On the ex-Braves front, Travis Demeritte has been...

    On the ex-Braves front, Travis Demeritte has been DFA'd by the Tigers. He was sent to Detroit as part of the Shane Greene trade.
  25. Sticky: On the Bauer contract it sounds like he is due to...

    On the Bauer contract it sounds like he is due to be paid $40 million in 2021 with an opt-out at the end of the season and $45 million in 2022 with an opt-out at the end of that season. That would...
