  • Braves' Ronald Acuna: Spot in order undetermined

    Acuna will either serve as the Braves' leadoff or cleanup hitter next season, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    After bursting onto the major-league scene in 2018, Acuna spent some time hitting out of different spots in the lineup (typically second) before settling into the leadoff spot coming out of the All-Star break. Following that change, he hit .322/.403/.625 with 19 home runs, 45 RBI and 14 stolen bases in the final two-plus months of the year and propelled the club to a National League East title. According to O'Brien, should Atlanta choose to move him down into the cleanup spot, Ender Inciarte and Ozzie Albies will vie for the opportunity to bat first in the lineup. At this point, Josh Donaldson is expected to hit second with Freddie Freeman behind him.

  • Braves' Josh Donaldson: Expected to bat second

    The Braves are anticipating Donaldson hitting second in the order during the 2019 season, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    Per O'Brien, Ronald Acuna will sit atop the order or man the cleanup spot while Freddie Freeman hits third. Ozzie Albies and Ender Inciarte are also under consideration to bat leadoff. Prior to Donaldson's injury-plagued 2018 campaign, he slashed .270/.385/.559 with 33 home runs and 78 RBI in 2017. The Braves are obviously betting on Donaldson staying healthy and returning to that form after signing him to a one-year, $23 million deal. Donaldson is in line to be the club's everyday third baseman while Johan Camargo takes on a utility role to begin the year.

  • Braves' Pedro Florimon: Signs minor-league deal with Braves

    Florimon signed a minor-league contract with the Braves on Monday, Jon Heyman of reports.

    The 31-year-old utility man has spent parts of eight years in the majors but hasn't received more than 86 plate appearances in a season since 2013. He owns a career .211/.270/.319 slash line. His positional flexibility gives him multiple ways to receive playing time in the event of an injury, but he's unlikely to have significant fantasy value.

  • Braves' Jonny Venters: Re-ups with Braves

    Venters agreed to a one-year, $2.25 million contract with Atlanta on Friday.

    Venters appeared in 50 games split between Tampa Bay and Atlanta this past season, logging a 3.67 ERA and 1.22 WHIP with 27 strikeouts across 34.1 innings. The National League Comeback Player of the Year helped the Braves reach the postseason after being out of the majors since the 2012 campaign due to elbow injuries. He should be able to crack the Braves' Opening Day roster as a left-handed option out of the bullpen.
