Projecting the Atlanta Braves’ opening day roster

Projecting the Atlanta Braves’ opening day roster

What will the opening day roster look like? We are less than 80 days away from opening day. Pitchers and catchers will report in a little more than a month.

Let's try to predict it. *Once this gets posted, it’s a near guarantee Coppy swings a couple trades within the first 72 hours. Catcher (2): Tyler Flowers, Anthony Recker It doesn't seem the Braves are all that interested in Matt Wieters, and there is very...

Rumor: Could Matt Wieters become an Angel?

Rumor: Could Matt Wieters become an Angel?

The Angels have expressed interest in the All-Star catcher The Angels already traded away their best cool-name player, Jett Bandy, back in December for Martin Maldanado of the Brewers.

Rumors are floating around the Angels are interested in Wieters and that is something, considering there has been very little talk surrounding him.

D'Back's GM Hazen Showing Interest In Swihart/Vazquez

D'Back's GM Hazen Showing Interest In Swihart/Vazquez

(AP Photo)Current Arizona (and former Red Sox) GM Mike Hazen is looking for catching. His current tandem is old and not that good. He's consider free-agent Matt Wieters, but he's apparently not that interested. Enter Blake Swihart and Christian Vazquez. Multiple reports indicate that Hazen has expressed interest in both Boston backstop prospects in a possible trade with his old boss Dave Dombrowski. Either Swihart or Vazquez could stabilize Arizona's catching corps for years to come. The word is, however, that Boston has no desire to part with either one—at least for now. Stay tuned!
