Braves release James Loney

The James Loney Era in Atlanta started on Thursday. It ended by the very next Monday. Well, that was quick. Not even a week after signing with the Braves in the fallout of Freddie Freeman’s injury, James Loney has left the Braves. The team made the announcement in a succinct tweet this afternoon, and apparently this was by mutual consent. James Loney asked for and was granted his release from @GwinnettBraves. We wish him all the best going forward.— Atlanta Braves (@Braves) May 22, 2017 Upon signing with the Braves on a minor league deal, the team assigned him to the G-Braves with...

Will Freeman’s wrist injury linger?

Will Freeman’s wrist injury linger?

We already know that Freddie Freeman is going to miss eight to twelve weeks with his wrist injury. The real question: will this affect his productivity going forward? If you asked me what the saddest part of Freddie Freeman’s wrist fracture is, I’d be torn between two thoughts. First, it’s not having the joy of watching Freeman maul baseballs every day for the next two or three months. That’s a huge loss. Second, though, it’s that this may have been Freeman’s career year, and the wrist injury has put a serious dent in his ability to have an MVP-caliber, top-all-time season....

Matt Adams made his Braves debut on Sunday as he begins what could be a very important time in his career. BRAVES NEWS Atlanta rallies late but can’t sweep Washington Needless to say, the fact that the Braves were even in position to sweep the Nationals after losing Freddie Freeman is a testament to the fact that this team is not going to just roll over and die. That was especially true on Sunday when — despite being completely shut down by Stephen Strasburg — the Braves still managed to put together a late rally down 3-0. They cut the lead down to one run in the eighth inning, but...

Braves, Jaime Garcia look for sweep of Nationals

Braves look for a sweep of the Nationals. The Atlanta Braves homered three more times Saturday night to secure a second straight win over the Washington Nationals. On Sunday they will go for a rare three-game sweep of Washington and could have a new bat in their lineup. Atlanta acquired first baseman Matt Adams from the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday and he is expected to be in the lineup for Sunday’s series finale. The Braves were left with a giant sized hole in their lineup after the loss of Freddie Freeman for 10 weeks due to a broken wrist. Adams can’t be expected to make up for...

How Matt Adams could work out for the Braves

How Matt Adams could work out for the Braves

Matt Adams is somewhat of a weird acquisition for the 2017 Braves, but there are some ways in which the move could work out. The Freddie Freeman-less world that the Braves will find themselves in for the next two months is definitely a sad one, make no mistake about that. On the heels of Freeman’s injury, the James Loney signing did not inspire much confidence: Loney was last a playable major leaguer in 2014, and hasn’t been a starter caliber playing since 2013; he also was hitting for a sub-100 wRC+ in AAA for the Tigers despite a 21 percent walk rate prior to his acquisition. To...
