Braves' Christian Colon: Inks NRI deal with Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Colon signed a minor-league contract with the Braves on Wednesday which includes an invitation to spring training, Robert Murray of FanRag Sports reports.

Colon played in 24 major-league games between the Royals and Marlins this past season, slashing .160/.236/.180 (eight hits in 57 plate appearances). The 28-year-old will look to latch on as a utility infielder with Atlanta for the upcoming season, but may wind up spending a decent amount of time in the minors yet again.

Braves' Johan Camargo: Current atop depth chart at third
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Camargo is currently atop the depth chart at third base for the Braves one week before the start of the Winter Meetings, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

With Austin Riley looking like the long-term solution at third base for the Braves, the team is seeking a steady option to hold down the job until Riley is ready (likely in 2019). As a result, Camargo is the leading internal candidate to open the season with the job, but the Braves may find an affordable solution in free agency if the market is soft for a player such as Todd Frazier since Mike Moustakas is also available this winter. Additionally, the list of teams looking for help at third base is reasonably short. Eventually, Camargo will likely end up handling a utility role for the Braves.

Braves' Chase Whitley: Agrees to deal to avoid arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitley agreed to a one-year contract with the Braves on Friday, avoiding arbitration, David O'Brien of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

The Braves brought Whitley in from Tampa Bay on a waiver claim earlier in the day -- a good indication that they planned to offer him a contract for next season. Whitley doesn't throw hard, but he has a breaking ball and a changeup which help him to remain relatively split neutral (.284 wOBA against lefties last year).

Braves' Chase Whitley: Claimed by Braves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitley was claimed off waivers by the Braves on Friday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

He was arbitration eligible for the first time, and the Rays did not want to pay what it was going to cost to keep him around. The 28-year-old righty notched a 4.08 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and just 43 strikeouts in 57.1 innings (41 appearances) out of Tampa Bay's bullpen last season. He should work in mop-up duty for the Braves in 2018.

Braves' Rex Brothers: Comes to terms with Braves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brothers agreed to a one-year, $1.1 million deal with the Braves on Thursday.

Brothers will return to Atlanta for a second season after avoiding salary arbitration with Thursday's non-guaranteed contract. The veteran reliever appeared in 27 games for the Braves last season, posting a 7.23 ERA (3.66 FIP) over 23.2 innings of work. As has been the case throughout his professional career, Brothers flashed impressive strikeout upside (31.4 percent K-rate), but continued to struggle with his command (11.4 percent walk rate). Barring any major mechanical adjustments, he'll likely be no more than a low-leverage relief arm for the Braves in 2018.
