Good morning, baseball fans!
The Braves signed Sean Rodriguez to a two-year deal:
Rodriguez, 31, had a solid season with the Pirates in 2016, batting .270/.349/.510 with 18 home runs and 56 RBIs over 140 games. He spent time as an outfielder and at first base, second base and shortstop.
Toronto is interested in Jerry Blevins to replace Brett Cecil.
Atlanta was apparently among the teams interested in Jason Castro:
There is concern about his defense. #Braves putting lot of emphasis on game-calling and pitch-framing, why they liked Castro so much. https://t.co/UrHjxXhofc— David O'Brien (@DOBrienAJC) November 25, 2016
The Angels considered adding Sean Rodriguez:
There goes another guy the #Angels had at least discussed (how seriously I can't say). Also, happy Thanksgiving. Thanks for following. https://t.co/795mM4cyZL— Jeff Fletcher (@JeffFletcherOCR) November 24, 2016
