    We’ll be writing up the non-tenders as they come in prior to Monday’s midnight deadline. These players immediately become free agents. AMERICAN LEAGUE Angels – RHP Juan Gutierrez, RHP Tommy Hanson, INF Chris Nelson, RHP Jerome Williams All of these were expected. Hanson and Williams would have cost upwards of $4 million apiece. Williams is…

    UPDATE: It looks like Eric O’Flaherty is facing the worst-case scenario, as David O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that he was diagnosed with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his left elbow. He’ll see Dr. James Andrews next week, but it would be a surprise if Tommy John surgery wasn’t the next step. The…

    Cristhian Martinez

    The Braves recently acquired reliever Luis Ayala and they found a way to get him on the roster. Right-hander Cristhian Martinez, suffering from a right-shoulder strain, was placed on the disabled list, per David O’Brien. Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez talked about his reliever’s injury: We were going to pitch him in the last inning, and…

    O'Flaherty_Eric

    The Braves, as mentioned earlier, are a file-and-trial team, so it’s significant that they and setup man  Eric O’Flaherty have reached a one-year deal to avoid arbitration. No word on the dollars yet, but he made just under $2.5 million last season. As Mark Bowman reports, the Braves still have Martin Prado, Jason Heyward, Kris Medlen, Jonny Venters…

  5. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 21, 2012, 6:07 AM EST

    Jayson Werth, Danny Espinosa, Kurt Suzuki,

    Nationals 5, Braves 4: I suppose you can yell at Dan Uggla for messing up the play with the infield in and a runner on third in the 13th inning which allowed the winning run to score. But perhaps it’s also worth noting that the Braves played perhaps their most important game to date, in…

  6. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Torii Hunter, Mark Trumbo

    Angels 10, Rockies 8: Mark Trumbo hit two three-run homers to help the Angels complete what was nothing short of an annihilation of the Rockies’ pitching staff. Trumbo is at .326/.380/.632. It would have been optimistic to predict those numbers from Pujols before the season started. Nationals 4, Red Sox 3: Bryce Harper had the…

  7. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    May 24, 2012, 8:28 AM EST

    Kansas City Royals v New York Yankees

    Yankees 8, Royals 3: Alex Rodriguez would like the New York sporting press to write more career obituaries for him. It seems to suit him nicely (2 for 4, 2 HR, 3 RBI). Reds 2, Braves 1: Todd Frazier hit a walkoff homer. It came off  Cristhian Martinez because, as everyone knows, Fredi Gonzalez would be drummed…

  8. Please Fredi, stop using your worst relievers in close games

    Apr 10, 2012, 1:47 AM EST

    Fredi Gonzalez probably throws harder than Livan Hernandez

    Let’s rank the Braves’ relievers in order from best to cannon fodder, shall we: Craig Kimbrel Jonny Venters Eric O’Flaherty Kris Medlen Cristhian Martinez Livan Hernandez Chad Durbin There’s nothing controversial there, right. One could argue about the order of the last two, but really, no one can possibly be that bored. Now let’s look…

    Can’t seem to go a week without one of these things. From Carroll Rogers of the AJC: Braves reliever Cristhian Martinez was arrested early Monday morning in Gwinnett County on charges of DUI, according to Gwinnett County jail records. Martinez’s blood alcohol registered more than the legal limit of .10, according to documents. He was…

  10. Running down the rosters: Atlanta Braves

    Feb 10, 2012, 7:10 PM EST

    Philadelphia Phillies v Atlanta Braves

    Since finishing off one of the biggest collapses in NL history, the Braves have responded by doing absolutely nothing, at least when it comes to adding. They did trade away Derek Lowe and let shortstop Alex Gonzalez leave in free agency. But every member of the current 25-man projected roster below was in the organization…
