We’ll track today’s minor moves in this post …
- The Braves have agreed to a minor-league pact with infielder Christian Colon, according to Robert Murray of Fan Rag. Assuming it is finalized and made official, Colon will presumably join the competition for a utility role in camp. The 28-year-old has not hit much at all in his two most recent MLB seasons, with the Royals and Marlins, but did slash .303/.361/.382 in his first 168 MLB plate appearances and owns a .290/.352/.391 batting line in his 1,465 trips to the plate at the Triple-A level. Colon has also graded solidly in the infield, where he has appeared at short, second, and third. Atlanta was in need of depth after non-tendering both Jace Peterson and Danny Santana, though the club does still have some notable, youthful middle-infield options on hand in Dansby Swanson, Ozzie Albies, and Johan Camargo.
Good for CC, hope he lands on a big league team somewhere I think he’s a more than serviceable UTIL. Aggregate stats don’t show it, but he played a crucial role in the ‘14 Wild Card comeback as well as knocking in the go-ahead run in their 12th of Game 5 of the ‘15 WS.
AA could trade with Rays///////// Kemp(pay 10mil.),Sims,I.Anderson and D.Cruz FOR Archer and J.Sanchez. Then trade with O’s \\\\\\\\\\Swanson,Muller,Markakis and Wisler FOR Machado.
Sims, Anderson, and Cruz don’t get Archer. Especially not with Kemp attached. And I’m not even going to comment on the Machado scenario lol.
