Atlanta Braves add some bullpen depth, bring back veteran Shane Greene on a one-year contract

Relief pitcher Shane Greene has signed a one-year contract to rejoin the Atlanta Braves.

Greene, who was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett, will need some time to get ready before returns to the majors. The right-hander went 1-0 with a 2.60 ERA and 21 strikeouts in 27 2/3 innings last season.

Braves relievers began Sunday with a 4.56 ERA that ranked 22nd in the majors. It’s a considerable slip from last year when the bullpen ranked fourth with a 3.50 ERA.

Greene, who was free agent, was used primarily as a setup man for closer Mark Melancon last season and will eventually fill the same role behind closer Will Smith this year.

Beginning May 7, Atlanta Braves to expand capacity to 100 percent

With vaccinations across the Southeast increasing and health and safety protocols still in place, the Atlanta Braves are set to resume normal Truist Park seating capacity beginning Friday, May 7 as the team begins their third homestand of the season with a series against the Philadelphia Phillies.

“We have had great success welcoming our fans back safely to Truist Park,” said Derek Schiller, President and CEO of the Atlanta Braves. “Our outdoor environment, the demand from our season ticket holders and fans to watch us play in person plus safety measures which are in place make it feel that now is the right time to get back to full capacity at Truist Park.”

All modified health and safety measures at Truist Park will remain in place. Measures include wearing a face covering unless actively eating or drinking, cashless concessions, mobile ticketing and ordering, and a no bag policy. Enhanced sanitization efforts throughout the ballpark will also continue. Revisions to the seating capacity or other health and safety measures will be subject to continuous review throughout the season.

Carter Stewart Jr., former top-10 pick and potential trailblazer, makes Nippon Professional Baseball

Carter Stewart Jr., the eighth overall pick in Major League Baseball’s 2018 draft who opted instead to sign with Japan’s Fukuoka Softbank Hawks, made his Nippon Professional Baseball big-league debut on Saturday. Stewart had previously been limited to pitching for the Softbank Hawks’ minor-league team in the Western League.
...
Stewart, 21, has the potential to become a trailblazer for American amateurs looking to make more money upfront without damaging their long-term MLB aspirations. Stewart is believed to have signed with the Softbank Hawks for around $7 million, or $5 million more than the Atlanta Braves were willing to offer him after discovering a wrist ailment in his post-draft physical.

Controversial call at home plate gives Phillies 7-6 win over Braves


The Philadelphia Phillies escaped Truist Park with a slight win on Sunday night.

Yet many watching at home, and even the Atlanta Braves, were confused with what appeared to be a missed call in the ninth inning that pushed the Phillies to their 7-6 win.

Phillies shortstop Didi Gregorius hit a fly ball to shallow left field in the top of the ninth inning, which prompted Alec Bohm — who doubled and then made it to third off a bunt — to break for home to try and take the lead.

Braves left fielder Marcell Ozuna made the catch and threw home to catcher Travis d’Arnaud. Bohm, after sliding in around the tag attempt, was called safe.


Though the call looked solid at first glance, replay showed that Bohm’s foot appeared to miss the plate completely.

Atlanta Braves acquire Orlando Arcia in trade with Milwaukee Brewers, source says

The Atlanta Braves acquired versatile infielder Orlando Arcia from the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday, a source confirmed to ESPN.

Arcia, 26, has spent all six of his major league seasons with Milwaukee. He has one hit in 11 at-bats this season, and he had a .260 batting average in 2020 with 5 home runs and 20 RBIs.

He has mostly played as a shortstop but has also seen time at third base and in the outfield.


Overall, he has a career .244 batting average with 42 home runs, 180 RBIs and 39 stolen bases.

MLBPA open to discuss pulling All-Star game out of Georgia after voting restrictions passed, chief says

MLB Players Association executive director Tony Clark said players are ready to discuss moving the summer’s All-Star game out of Atlanta after the state legislature passed an election reform bill restricting voter access, the Boston Globe reported.

The 91st MLB All-Star game is scheduled for the Atlanta Braves’ Truist Park on July 13 and they’re planning to have full capacity.

Via Michael Silverman at the Boston Globe:

“Players are very much aware” of the Georgia voting bill, which places restrictions on voting accessibility that will make it particularly difficult for Black voters to reach the polls, said Tony Clark in an interview with the Globe. “As it relates to the All-Star Game, we have not had a conversation with the league on that issue – if there is an opportunity to, we would look forward to having that conversation.”

There’s precedent for moving an all-star game based on enacted legislation. The NBA moved its 2017 game out of Charlotte, North Carolina, following laws that limited anti-discrimination protections for the LGBTQ community.

EDIT: A reminder why I shut off the political threads. After receiving a few complaints, I’ve disabled commenting and have banned a couple posters. FYI, Jim.

Cobb spokesman: Economic impact estimates of All Star game came from MLB and Braves

Cobb County Chief Financial Officer William Volckmann sent a memo to the county manager last week, saying that the Major League Baseball All Star Game at Truist Park in July would cost taxpayers about $2 million in expenses but the county would see a “robust return” on the investment.

“In the past, hosting cities have experienced an economic impact ranging from $37M to $190M,” Volckmann wrote in the memo. “Many of our surrounding hotels/motels are already completely sold out and the travel and tourism industry, restaurants and event venues will certainly benefit from the All Star Game.”

But county officials acknowledged to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Monday that any windfall won’t necessarily come back to county government.

The memo ended up as supporting material in an agenda item for Tuesday’s commission meeting, at which commissioners will be asked to approve the $2 million expense. And the economic impact figures in the memo were provided to Volckmann by Major League Baseball and the Braves, county spokesman Ross Cavitt said.

Volckmann’s memo does not mention the source of the $37 to $190 million economic impact calculation. It does reference data from the online Baseball Almanac showing that “the Midsummer Classic is a significant economic boon to hosting cities,” but no specific figures are attributed to the Almanac.

Braves revenue fell by almost $300 million last year

The Braves’ revenue declined by 63%, falling from a franchise-record $476 million in 2019 to $178 million in 2020, as a result of a shortened season played without fans in the stands, according to figures disclosed Friday by team owner Liberty Media.

The Braves had an operating loss before depreciation and amortization of $49 million last year, representing a negative swing of $103 million from a profit of $54 million in 2019, the company said.

Liberty Media said in its financial report that of the Braves’ $178 million in 2020 revenue, $142 million came from baseball sources, down from $438 million in 2019. The other $36 million came from real-estate development The Battery Atlanta, down from $38 million the year before. Total revenue declined $298 million from 2019.

Such baseball revenue sources as ticket and concession sales were shut off in 2020 as games were played amid the COVID-19 pandemic without fans in attendance. The reduced number of games “also negatively impacted broadcasting revenue,” Liberty Media noted. Other revenue streams, such as sponsorships and parking, also were affected.

Atlanta Braves extend contract of manager Brian Snitker

Coming off a third straight NL East title and getting to within one win of a spot in the World Series, the Atlanta Braves have extended the contract of manager Brian Snitker through the 2023 season.

The extension announced Friday includes a club option for 2024.

The 65-year-old Snitker took over the Braves on an interim basis in 2016 when the club was in the midst of a massive rebuilding job.

After going 72-90 in his first full season, Atlanta won the first of its three straight division titles in 2018.

Last season, the Braves won a postseason series for the first time since 2001, beating Cincinnati in the wild-card round and Miami in the division series before losing to the eventual World Series champion Los Angeles Dodgers in an NL Championship Series that went to seven games.

Braves sign Jason Kipnis to minor league deal with invite to spring training

The Braves have signed veteran infielder Jason Kipnis to a minor league deal with an invite to spring training. Kipnis first tweeted he was joining the Braves, while Jon Heyman added it was not a guaranteed big league contract. The terms of Kipnis’ contract should he make the big league roster were not immediately known.

Kipnis, who turns 34 in April, spent last year with the Cubs and performed decently after appearing in 44 games, batting .237/.341/.404 with a 103 wRC+ and 0.6 WAR. His strikeout rate was sky-high at 30% (compared to a career 19% average) although he also walked at the highest rate of his career (13.3%). Last season in Chicago was his first after spending nearly a decade in Cleveland.

Kipnis played second base exclusively with the Cubs during the shortened 2020 season with the exception of one game at first base.

Outfielder Marcell Ozuna returns to Atlanta Braves on four-year, $64 million deal

The Atlanta Braves are bringing back Marcell Ozuna, signing the slugger to a $64 million, four-year contract.

The Braves announced the deal for the 2020 NL home run and RBI leader on Friday night, less than two weeks before pitchers and catchers are set to report for spring training. The contract includes a fifth-year club option for $16 million that would take it to $80 million with a $1 million buyout, which would yield Ozuna $65 million in guaranteed money.

Ozuna took a gamble on himself after the 2019 season, turning down a $17.8 million qualifying offer from the St. Louis Cardinals, and signed a one-year, $18 million deal with the Braves in late January. The move paid off handsomely, as the slugger finished sixth in the National League MVP voting after leading the league with 18 home runs, 56 RBIs and 145 total bases. He was third in the NL with a career-best .338 batting average and .636 slugging percentage.

Braves re-sign Pablo Sandoval

The Braves re-signed infielder Pablo Sandoval to a one-year, minor-league deal Sunday. The contract is worth $1 million, if he makes the major-league roster.

Sandoval, 34, joined the Braves late last season and spent most of the time working out at the team’s alternate training site in Gwinnett. He appeared in only one game in the regular season — the finale — but made the postseason roster as a bench player. He had four plate appearances, going 0-for-3 with a hit by pitch.

Aaron’s death prompts call to change name: Braves to Hammers

Social media buzzed with calls to change the moniker to match Aaron’s nickname. There was even a fledgling online petition backing the idea.

“The renaming serves two important purposes: 1) It honors an icon who represented our city with grace and dignity for more than half a century, and 2) It removes the stain on the city of having a team name that dishonors Native and Indigenous people, especially given one of the greatest tragedies in American History, the Trail of Tears, began in the region the team calls home,” the petition said.

The Braves have steadfastly resisted calls to change their name, saying they view it as a tribute to Native Americans rather than a slur.

But the team did take steps during the 2019 playoffs to downplay symbols of its nickname after St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Ryan Helsley — a member of the Cherokee Nation — said he found the team’s “Tomahawk Chop” chant offensive.

Hall of Famer Henry “Hank” Aaron dies at 86.

Hall of Famer and one-time home run king Atlanta Braves legend Henry Louis “Hank” Aaron passed away this morning at the age of 86, CBS46 has learned. He leaves behind an indelible legacy on and off the baseball diamond.

...

It was the 1974 season that saw Aaron smash his way into the national consciousness. On April 8, 1974 Hammerin’ Hank, as he was known, crushed a 1-0 pitch from Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Al Downing over the left field wall at Fulton County Stadium and broke Babe Ruth’s long-time home run record of 714 home runs in a career.


—and we’ve lost another one.

What the Braves Can Tell Us About MLB’s Financial Losses in 2020

The Braves’ baseball revenue principally comes from national and local television deals plus gate receipts. We know the last number is zero. We also know that in a normal season, Atlanta makes $83 million in local television revenue. If we pro-rate that number for the season that was just played, we end up at around $33 million, leaving around $69 million to come from MLB’s central office. Assuming every team received roughly the same amount, we are talking about $2 billion comprised mostly of national television revenue. That’s also roughly the amount players were paid this season, including playoffs and benefits. While we can’t know for sure, it certainly seems likely that adding a bunch of national games during the week on FOX and FS1, combined with the additional Wild Card broadcasts on ESPN, ABC, and TBS, meant that MLB made roughly as much on national television deals as it would have in a normal season, and that those figures alone paid for player salaries.

Three months is not an entire year, though, and once we factor in the other nine months, we can start to see how MLB lost money. In the second quarter of 2020 (April, May and June), the Braves’ baseball revenue totaled $5 million; that same period brought in $198 million in 2019. Expenses went down from $146 million to $37 million, and while that drop helps offset the losses some, there’s still a huge gap between those quarters. A change is not the same as a loss, however, as the second quarter of 2019 saw $62 million of operating income (Adjusted OIBDA). Comparing revenues and expenses, the Braves’ had just a $26 million loss in what would have been the first three months of the season. Add in the $6 million in gains during the actual season, and Atlanta ended up losing $20 million over that period.

That figure doesn’t square with Manfred’s claims of losses five times that high, but there’s more to it than that. The money a team makes in the regular season helps cover its losses during the winter. In the first quarter, the Braves were down $25 million, and while the fourth quarter of 2020 isn’t over, the last two years have seen them down a total of $34 million in those periods. So if we speculate an operating loss (Adjusted OIBDA) of $20 million for the rest of 2020, the Braves would have been down $65 million for the entire year, though that’s without accounting for the potentially tens of millions extra in tax benefits due to those unusual losses.

Sources: Atlanta Braves, RHP Charlie Morton agree to 1-year, $15 million deal

Charlie Morton is in agreement on a one-year, $15 million deal with the Atlanta Braves, sources told ESPN’s Jeff Passan.

Morton is headed back to the team that drafted him in 2002—and gets the same money that Tampa Bay turned down when it declined its club option last month.

Morton, who led the Rays to the World Series with a Game 7 victory over the Houston Astros in the ALCS, became a free agent after Tampa Bay declined a $15 million option for the 2021 season.

Morton doesn’t have any no-trade protection or incentive clauses built into his deal with the Braves, sources told ESPN’s Buster Olney.

Moore: Age is just a number for Niekro and Moyer

Phil Niekro: The sparks is still there!

“Oh, yeah. I threw my last [Major League] pitch when I was 48, but I could have gone another year or two,” Niekro said, recalling his final season in 1987. It began with the Cleveland Indians, but he was traded near the end of the season to the pennant-hopeful Toronto Blue Jays.

After two rough starts, then-Blue Jays general manager Pat Gillick released Niekro and told Toronto reporters that he thought Niekro’s career was over.

“Since I have total respect for [Gillick], and also out of fairness to myself, I just took his word and decided that maybe he knew more about myself than I did, and that maybe he sees something that I don’t see, so I went by his words,” said Niekro, who made one final start with Atlanta that season. “After I retired, the next Spring Training, I got the fever. Then the next Spring Training after that, I got the fever.”

In fact, Niekro still has the fever.

Said Niekro, chuckling, but only a little, “I still feel like I can get guys out in the big leagues right now. My arm feels as good now as it did when I retired.”

...“I’ll throw some BP down there, so my arm is no problem,” Niekro said. “To stick around a long time, it’s a discipline thing for a player, where you have to stay healthy. You also have to be fortunate, just to spend any time in the big leagues. I’ve got no squabbles about anything. I just kick myself in the butt for not hanging around for another year or two.”

Braves re-sign infielder Jack Wilson

As an old pequod sod in the bar used to say to anybody named Jack…“#### you, Jack, I’m all right!!”

The Atlanta Braves have re-signed veteran infielder Jack Wilson to a one-year deal, the team’s website reports.

Wilson, 34, hit .243 with no homers, 11 RBIs in part-time duty with the Braves and Seattle Mariners in 2011. He was dealt to Atlanta on Aug. 31.

His biggest impact this season might be as a mentor/insurance policy.

Barring another acquisition, the Braves will start rookie Tyler Pastornicky at shortstop on opening day. The 22-year-old hit .314 with seven homers, 45 RBIs and 27 stolen bases between the Class AA and Class AAA levels in 2011, but he never has played in the majors.

BBPro:  Heartburn Hardball - Jack Morris in Motion

Morris, who was the face of the Detroit Tigers’ pitching staff for the entirety of the eighties before spending the early nineties hopping between the Twins, Blue Jays, and Indians, has every right to be thrilled at the news. And the rest of us, especially those who were too young to see him pitch, have every right to ask…why Jack Morris? Why now?

To answer that question, I decide to watch the most famous performance of his career, the game that proved once and for all that he was a true ace and a true winner.

....

The Twins will win 1-0 in the bottom of the 10th, winning the second World Series title in franchise history and solidifying Jack Morris’s place in baseball history.

And when it’s over, I will be more convinced than ever that Jack Morris is not a Hall of Fame pitcher.

Blasts from the Past

With the Hall of Fame results being announced today, we decided to take a trip down memory lane and dig up some old scouting reports from the Baseball America archives on some of the ballot’s notable candidates. . .

8. Barry Larkin, ss, 21, 5-11, 175, R-R
Larkin looked right at home in AA, hitting .267 for Vermont. He didn’t show power (one home run in 255 at-bats), but that will come. The key for him was just getting his feet on the ground, and he was not overpowered by the high level of competition (21 strikeouts in 255 at-bats). He will have good power for a shortstop.

6. Edgar Martinez, 3b, 25, 5-11, 175, R-R
Martinez’s discipline will produce runs. He’s averaged 70 RBIs the last four years. In the field, he’s solid, with good reactions and the soft hands of a middle infielder.

ajc: “Murph” surprised by low Hall of Fame votes, still hopeful

Kicking TBS: Live in Atlanta…with Dale Murphy.

Q: Probably not a lot of 50-something former MVPs can say they’ve been getting into Wilco and other bands, huh?

A: Well it’s been fun, and I think that’s the fun of Twitter – this intersection or cross-section of diverse people and interests, and you connect in ways … it’s been fun. In fact, I did a [online interview] with Peter Moylan, and he was asking me about music I listen to. And he and Chipper [Jones] were wondering who half the bands were that I named…. [Laughter.] I’m going to have a contest on Twitter and say the first hitter that walks up to [to the plate] with Wilco or something like that playing, I’m going to get him [a prize].

Q: OK, let’s change gears a bit. Murph, has this time of year become frustrating for you because of the annual Hall of Fame voting announcement? Or do you still allow yourself to be optimistic about your chances?

A: I’m always kind of optimistic. Not really frustrated, I think because my percentage [of votes] hasn’t really been knocking on the door, you know? I think if it’d been at 60 percent or something for five years, it might be different. I mean, I always try to be optimistic. I know my percentage is pretty low and you need 75. And I’m not really close. So in that way I’m not really frustrated.

To be honest, I thought my percentage would be higher over the years. It hasn’t been high. I tend to feel like I’ll get a bump this year. We’ll see. There’s been some talk about guys that played in the ‘70s and ‘80s, that there might be some revisiting of their careers [by voters], and I have some people that have been supportive. So we’ll see. I appreciate the support and I try to stay optimistic.

The Greatest Animated Sports .GIFs of 2011

32. Cliff Lee declines to run out his own grounder

I’m a firm opponent of the designated hitter rule, because just as I love to watch a punter try to scoop up a bad snap and try to throw it, or see a 7’1” center with no range try to chuck up a last-second three, I love watching pitchers hit.

Never will I come closer to seeing what it would be like if someone with my skill set tried to perform on a professional level. I mean, how nuts is this: in the National League, five to 10 percent of all at-bats are taken by men who, by everyone’s admission, are profoundly bad at it! It’s Dada performance art, and the ubiquity of such comical nonsense—over the course of a game, a season, and the history of baseball—is unrivaled by anything in any other sport.

This GIF features a delightful bonus: the catcher starts jogging to the dugout well before the play ends. It’s beautiful.
