Free Agent Poll: Dansby Swanson

Free Agent Poll: Dansby Swanson

Photo by Kevin D. Liles/Atlanta Braves/ Happy Thanksgiving to those of you on the other side of the border. We have used this idea for the last couple of years. The idea is to go through some of the top free agents, using the contract FanGraphs suggests and have a poll to see if we would sign him for that amount. Dansby Swanson is number 8 on FanGraphs’ list and #3 on Keith Law’s list. He had a very good season to go into free agency with, hitting .277/.329/.447,0 and he was good defensively. Outs Above Average had him at a +21, the best number for a shortstop by...

Should the Braves Target Michael Brantley?

As the hot stove heats up, all eyes are on what the Atlanta Braves will do about Dansby Swanson. However, shortstop isn’t the only area of need for Atlanta. Left field is currently occupied by Eddie Rosario and Marcell Ozuna, but the two combined for -1.7 fWAR, and one target the Braves could upgrade the […] Should the Braves Target Michael Brantley? - Tomahawk Take - Tomahawk Take - Atlanta Braves News & Fan Community

Atlanta Braves Trade Candidates: Is Amed Rosario a fit in Atlanta?

The Atlanta Braves biggest storyline this winter is the hole at shortstop. Today, I look at a unique idea of Amed Rosario being the Braves 2023 shortstop. Now, I want to start by saying this is a break glass in case of emergency scenario. I imagine that Dansby Swanson is still high on the team’s […] Atlanta Braves Trade Candidates: Is Amed Rosario a fit in Atlanta? - Tomahawk Take - Tomahawk Take - Atlanta Braves News & Fan Community

Photo by Brett Davis/ Looking at how the Braves would fill that role if Dansby Swanson signs elsewhere What if the Atlanta Braves don’t bring back Dansby Swanson. What happens at shortstop? One report says they wouldn’t pursue any of the other big-name players at the position. Can they get by with in-house options Vaughn Grissom and Orlando Arcia? Would they look at a stop-gap signing or a trade? And if they aren’t putting expected spending into shortstop, where else could the Braves look? Grant McAuley and Cory McCartney discuss.

Examining the Braves’ trade options for shortstop

Photo by Kayla Wolf/ Considering some alternatives to the pricy free agents at the position The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal wrote earlier this week about what he’s hearing so far in the offseason ($), and professed a belief that the Braves are unlikely to sign any of the major free agent shortstops if they don’t get a deal done with Dansby Swanson. If that is indeed the case, and it’s Swanson-or-bust in free agency, it behooves us to examine shortstop options that could be available on the trade market.

Braves News: Dennis Santana to Atlanta, Dansby Swanson rejects QO, and more

Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports Tuesday turned out to be a day full of roster moves for the Braves After a few early-morning additions to the 40-man roster, the Atlanta Braves swapped RHP Dennis Santana of the Texas Rangers for cash considerations. The 26-year-old has appeared in 134 big-league games. He posts a career 5.12 ERA across 139 frames. Santana put together a subpar 2022 season. He ended the season with a 3-8 record and a 5.22 ERA. His only career start came in September 2022 as the Rangers took on the Boston Red Sox in a bullpen game. He tossed two innings of...
