James Loney: Signs on with Korean club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Loney agreed Tuesday with the LG Twins of the Korea Baseball Organization on a $350,000 contract for the remainder of the season, Jeeho Yoo of the Yonhap News Agency reports.

Loney has been out of baseball since late May after he was unable to parlay minor-league contracts he signed earlier this season with the Rangers, Tigers and Braves into a big-league roster spot. Since the 33-year-old didn't have the desire to slum it the minors following 11 seasons in the majors, he'll instead head abroad to continue his career. Given his age, it's unlikely that Loney will generate much interest from MLB teams next winter even if he's able to play productively during his time in Korea.

James Loney: Released by Braves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Loney was granted his release by the Braves on Monday.

With the Braves bringing Matt Adams to fill their void at first base, Loney saw the writing on the wall that his services were no longer needed. His vast big-league experience and the .704 OPS he posted with the Mets last season make it hard to believe that he'll have a very hard time finding a new home in free agency.

Braves' James Loney: Reporting to Triple-A on Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Loney likely will join Triple-A Gwinnett on Friday, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

It was just a matter of when. The Braves inked Loney to a minors deal Thursday after Freddie Freeman (wrist) was hit by a pitch that will sideline him for at least two months. They feel they can get by with what they have on the big-league roster, though, so Loney will camp out until needed. They'll piece together work at first base with Rio Ruiz and Jace Peterson, who may also share third base until Adonis Garcia (Achilles) returns. That'll likely happen next week.

Braves' James Loney: Assigned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Loney will report to Triple-A Gwinnett, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

Despite Freddie Freeman landing on the disabled list with a wrist fracture, Loney will have to earn his spot on Atlanta's major-league roster. Loney has yet to perform well at the Triple-A level this season. Prior to joining the Braves, he was a member of the Tigers' organization and played at Triple-A Toledo, where he owned a bleak .229 batting average.

Braves' James Loney: Reaches deal with Braves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Loney agreed to a minor-league contract with the Braves on Thursday, Buster Olney of ESPN reports.

This seems to be a direct response to the news that Freddie Freeman (wrist) will be out for at least eight weeks. Loney was with the Rangers during spring training, then spent time with the Tigers during the beginning of the regular season, but he was subsequently released after batting just .229 during his brief stint with the Mud Hens. It's unclear if the Braves intend to ease him back into action or deploy him as their primary first baseman from the get-go, but things should become clear in the near future.
