Braves: Ronald Acuna continues embracing big stage

Ronald Acuna isn’t just baseball’s best prospect. He’s a talent who’s shown he can show up when it matters most.

Drew Waters enjoying time with Braves, growing as hitter

The Braves selected Waters, an 18-year-old from Etowah High School, with the 41st pick in the June MLB draft. A $1.5 million bonus – slightly under slotted value – convinced him to pass on the University of Georgia to join his lifelong favorite team. Waters joined several former Braves...

Braves GM Alex Anthopoulos talks philosophy, analytics, big trades

New Braves general manager Alex Anthopoulos is known to wheel and deal. Anthopoulos was the Blue Jays GM from 2009-15.

In his tenure, Anthopoulos revived a lackluster franchise with a trade resume that reads like an All-Star roster. While assistant GM, the team acquired pillars Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion...

Anthopoulos: Won’t change Braves coaches, will hit ground running

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – While still a relatively young general manager, Alex Anthopoulos is experienced, sharp and confident enough to know he needn’t come to his new Braves organization and immediately start moving the furniture around, much less tossing pieces into the street as if he knows best or to show he’s The Man. He’s not changing the manager for 2018, after the Braves...

Braves interested in veteran reliever and old friend Peter Moylan

With Austin Riley on rise, Braves unlikely to pursue expensive 3B

With Austin Riley on rise, Braves unlikely to pursue expensive 3B

PEORIA, Ariz. – The Braves aren’t likely to pursue a big-ticket free-agent third baseman this winter, in part because they don’t want to block prospect Austin Riley by signing a veteran to a multi-year deal that might overlap the anticipated arrival of the young slugger. The other reason could be that none of the available free agents is enticing enough for the Braves to get into...

Braves unlikely to pursue free-agent Mike Moustakas 

Free-agent third baseman Mike Moustakas already has been linked to the Braves. But the team is unlikely to dive into what’s expected to be a steep bidding war for the two-time All-Star. The Braves need help at third base and in the power department. Moustakas provides that, but at a potentially prohibitive cost; both financially and to the Braves’ rebuild. Vegas odds makers think the Braves ...

Luiz Gohara big winner in Baseball America’s 2018 Braves prospect rankings

The Braves are overwhelmed with uncertainty, though it helps that their pockets are still rich with the game’s premium prospects.

Say what you will about the past (and current) administration...

Braves reliever Krol opts for free agency

  Left-hander Ian Krol opted to become a free agent rather than accept the Braves’ outright assignment to Triple-A Gwinnett.

Really, you can play golf at SunTrust Park

The Braves are – again – turning their stadium into a golf course. For a limited time, of course. From Oct. 25-29 (next Wednesday through Sunday), SunTrust Park will be converted into a nine-hole golf course by Stadiumlinks. The event is open to the public. The Braves did the same thing with Turner Field for three days last year and the Padres did so at Petco Park. Not to worry, grounds...

Snitker to return in 2018, says Braves have chance to be ‘lot better’

After picking up the pieces as an interim manager in 2016 and shepherding so many prospects through their first big-league season in 2017, manager Brian Snitker hoped he’d get a chance to take the Braves through the next stage of their rebuild in 2018.
