    Braves claim 1B/OF Christian Walker from Os. He'll report to ML camp.

    And, while with silent lifting mind I've trod

    Put out my hand and touched the face of God.

    I like this claim. I think he could become a valuable bench piece later this season. He showed good pop in the minors. Didn't cost us anything except a spot on the 40-man roster, I believe he is still on there.

    2017 rotation set ----

    Teheran
    Colon
    Garcia
    Dickey
    Folty

    Folty could have a real break out season in the 5 spot IMO. Could top 15 wins.

    I do like the fact that Garcia is above Dickey...however, I think Folty should be ahead of Dickey... I agree with you Sal, Folty is going to have a good year. Don't care about his win total, care more about ERA and low walks.

    I for one like the signing. It's not a major league, so if it doesn't work out, then no harm. If he proves he can hit, then not a bad bat to have on the bench/DH/trade down the road. However, I don't have high hopes for him to rebound.

    I would gladly exchange Recker for Howard's 2nd half last year.

    Great DH option if he has something left. No risk for Braves at all. If he can deepen the bench and give a legit HR/XBH threat off bench I'm all for it.

    We have 3 series in AL parks I believe from start of May to early June so...

    Interesting article in MLBTR about Glavine in group headed by Tagg Romney(Mitt's son) to buy Fish. Says he'll want to be part of operation, including possible GM position.

    #Braves traded RHR David Hernandez to Angels for cash or PTBNL. He had a May 1 opt out, so had to trade him before then to get anything

    According to multiple sites, Chase d'Arnaud has been DFA and OFer Lane Adams replaces him on the active roster.

    Good move, d'Arnaud played many positions but none of them very well and couldn't hit.

    Adams stole 44 bases in 49 attempts in MiLB last year.

    I don't think Adams is gonna be a rally maker. But if he can get a key hit off the bench or steal a base, etc it makes the team better.
