    #Braves signed LHR Jacob Lindgren, who had TJ surgery in August and could miss entire 2017 season. He was non-tendered by Yankees.

    #Braves Rule 5 pick Rivero, 28, had 2.13 ERA in 43 appearances for Triple-A Iowa with 105 strikeouts in 67 2/3 IP. Real nice Rule 5 pick.

    • The Braves have a minor-league deal in place to bring back infielder Emilio Bonifacio, Cotillo tweets. Now 31, Bonifacio has played in the majors in ten consecutive seasons. But his opportunities have dwindled of late, and he spent most of 2016 at Triple-A. In his 471 plate appearances at Gwinnett, Bonifacio slashed a solid .298/.356/.369. He could conceivably challenge for a utility role next spring.

    Mallex gone as is Shea

    The Braves traded outfielder Mallex Smith and relief pitcher Shae Simmons to the Seattle Mariners on Wednesday for a pair of left-handed pitching prospects, Luiz Gohara and Thomas Burrows.

    But Seattle sent Mallex on TB

    The Mariners have struck yet another two-deal day, as Seattle has announced the acquisition of lefty Drew Smyly from the Rays. Tampa Bay will pick up center fielder Mallex Smith — who was just added by Seattle in a trade with the Braves

    #Braves 1-year, $1.5M deal with FA catcher Kurt Suzuki is pending physical. He could more than double that amount w/ potential incentives.

    I don't understand the Suzuki signing. Too many catchers as it was...

    Medlen back on straight MiL deal

    I think #Braves could still have room for Francoeur, at least on minor league deal. They like having him around + he's good insurance/depth

    Medlen signing is interesting that it didn't include a ST invite. I wouldn't mind Frenchy back. He played decent enough for us last season that we were able to move him at the deadline for something. According to MLBTR, Tuffy Gosewisch (Catcher we claimed from Arizona) was claimed by the Mariners about 3 days ago. I guess when we signed Suzuki, Gosewisch was the odd man out and got DFA.

    As reported n every site, Brandon Phillips to the Braves for basically nothing. Braves are only on the hook for $1M of his $14M salary...

    Personally, I think this is a good deal for the Braves. Upgrade over Jace and with Rodriguez out with shoulder injury from the wreck, it had to be done.

    Agree with Evad. Good signing

    As pleased as the Braves were to trade for second baseman Brandon Phillips and pay such a relatively small price for the former All-Star, they felt awful about the reason they needed to make the move: to replace injured Sean Rodriguez.
