    Six shutouts on Sunday afternoon. So don’t worry if you think you wasted your day because 20% of all major league teams didn’t get much done yesterday either.

    Rather than accept another minor-league contract and try to pitch his way back to the majors again 37-year-old right-hander Freddy Garcia has signed with the EDA Rhinos in Taiwan, where he’ll be the highest-player in the history of the league.

    In which I speculate why Garcia is heading across the ocean. The answer may surprise you! Unless you’ve ever had babies at home before, in which case you’ll go “yep, I woulda too.”

  4. Freddy Garcia has fielded multiple minor league offers, including one from the Rangers

    Free agent right-hander Freddy Garcia has reportedly received minor league offers from multiple teams, but still hopes to land a major league deal.

  5. One game, one pitcher … who do you choose?

    Mar 27, 2014, 4:40 PM EDT

    Pedro Martinez

    Somebody asked me this question on Twitter: If I could have any pitcher from any time pitch one game (say a seventh game of the World Series or the ubiquitous “pitching for your soul” scenario”) who would I choose? I immediately typed: Pedro. 1999. This is always my fallback position. Back in the Trivial Pursuit…

  6. Nationals release right-hander Chris Young

    Mar 25, 2014, 7:13 PM EDT

    chris young getty

    Chris Young proved he’s recovered from thoracic outlet surgery this spring by posting a respectable 3.48 ERA and 1.16 WHIP in four Grapefruit League appearances for the Nationals. But there’s no spot for him on Washington’s major league roster and so he was let go in a round of cuts Tuesday in camp. Young did…

  7. Braves sign right-hander Aaron Harang to one-year contract

    Aaron Harang AP

    UPDATE: The Braves just announced that they have signed Garcia to a one-year major league contract. 7:11 p.m. ET: It’s done. FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal reports that the Braves are signing Harang. He’ll presumably begin the year with a rotation spot. 6:30 p.m. ET: The Braves made a surprising decision earlier today when they cut…

  8. The Braves cut Freddy Garcia

    With their top two starters gone for the season with Tommy John surgery, you’d figure that Atlanta would be a safe place to be if you’re a starter looking to make the big club. Not necessarily: Freddy Garcia is packing his stuff. The Braves told him he will not be on the Opening Day roster.…

  9. Julio Teheran to start Opening Day for Braves

    Mar 22, 2014, 10:47 AM EDT

    Julio Teheran AP

    Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports that right-hander Julio Teheran will start Opening Day for the Braves when they take on the Brewers on March 31. Kris Medlen was originally expected to get the call for the Braves, but he underwent Tommy John surgery earlier this week, leaving Teheran as the obvious choice for the assignment.…

  10. The Braves aren’t adding another starting pitcher

    Mar 15, 2014, 10:42 AM EDT

    Braves Logo

    The Braves bolstered their suddenly shaky rotation earlier this week when they signed right-hander Ervin Santana to a one-year, $14.1 million contract, but general manager Frank Wren told FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal this morning via phone that he isn’t planning to add another starter even with Kris Medlen and Brandon Beachy potentially headed for another…

  11. Brandon Beachy expects to have no restrictions in spring training

    Jan 27, 2014, 9:08 PM EDT

    Brandon Beachy AP

    Braves right-hander Brandon Beachy has been limited to just five starts in the majors since Tommy John surgery in June of 2012, but he’s hoping for better luck on the health front this year. Elbow inflammation pushed Beachy’s season debut back to July 29 last year and he eventually underwent surgery in September to remove…

  12. Braves re-sign Freddy Garcia

    Jan 24, 2014, 12:05 PM EDT

    Freddy Garcia

    Freddy Garcia found the fountain of youth down the stretch for Atlanta, posting a 1.65 ERA in 27 innings after looking just about washed up for the Orioles and at Triple-A, and now the Braves have re-signed the 37-year-old to a minor-league deal. Barring injuries it’ll be awfully tough for Garcia to crack the Braves’…

  13. Mets have had “some dialogue” with Freddy Garcia

    Jan 10, 2014, 10:47 AM EDT

    Freddy Garcia

    As the Mets search for inexpensive rotation depth Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports that “there has been at least some dialogue” with right-hander Freddy Garcia. Garcia was terrible for the Orioles early last season, got demoted to Triple-A, and then resurfaced in the majors with the Braves down the stretch. Overall he threw…

  14. The Braves want Tim Hudson back

    Tim Hudson Getty

    When you start Freddy Garcia in an elimination game, yeah, you might be interested in bringing back a starter you’ve had around for nine years and with whom you’re quite comfortable: Frank Wren has provided strong indication he would like Tim Hudson back in the #Braves rotation next year. — Mark Bowman (@mlbbowman) October 14,…

  15. Dodgers finish off Braves in four games, advance to NLCS

    The Dodgers have punched their ticket to the NLCS. Thanks to some late-inning heroics from Juan Uribe, the Dodgers defeated the Braves 4-3 tonight at Dodger Stadium to finish off the NLDS in four games. This will be the franchise’s 10th trip to the NLCS and their first since 2009. The Dodgers jumped out to…

  16. Braves jump ahead of Dodgers on run-scoring single from Jose Constanza

    Oct 8, 2013, 12:11 AM EDT

    Jose Constanza AP

    The Braves have relied on a cast of unlikely heroes to take the lead over the Dodgers in Game 4 of the NLDS this evening. After Ronald Belisario took over for Clayton Kershaw in the seventh inning, he gave up a one-out triple to Elliot Johnson down the right field line. Yasiel Puig went into…

  17. Braves tie it up against Dodgers in Game 4 of NLDS

    Oct 7, 2013, 11:01 PM EDT

    Evan Gattis AP

    The Dodgers stormed out to an early 2-0 lead against Freddy Garcia behind a pair of solo homers from Carl Crawford, but the Braves are fighting back against Clayton Kershaw. With an assist from the Dodgers’ defense, anyway. After Freddie Freeman singled to lead off the top of the fourth inning, Adrian Gonzalez made a…

  18. Dodgers strike first against Braves in Game 4 of NLDS

    Oct 7, 2013, 10:05 PM EDT

    Carl Crawford

    Facing elimination, the Braves are looking for a big performance out of veteran right-hander Freddy Garcia tonight against the Dodgers. It’s not working out so well thus far. After Clayton Kershaw worked around an error for a scoreless top of the first inning, Carl Crawford led off the bottom of the inning by launching a…

  20. Dodgers taking an unnecessary risk starting Clayton Kershaw in Game 4

    Oct 7, 2013, 4:16 PM EDT

    Division Series - Los Angeles Dodgers v Atlanta Braves - Game One

    Clayton Kershaw has never started on three days’ rest. Now the Dodgers are asking him to do just that in Monday’s Game 4 against the Braves. Rather than trust Ricky Nolasco to close out the series, they’re going to bank on their ace who is about to win his second Cy Young Award. In a…

  21. What a Braves fan tweets at 4AM when his team faces elimination

    Oct 7, 2013, 8:02 AM EDT

    Owl Creek

    I have a cold and feel like crap and last night’s Braves-Dodgers game was not exactly a big bowl of chicken soup on top of it. So it’s probably not surprising that I went to bed somewhat grumpy, resigned to the fact that Freddy Garcia is all that stands in between the present and the…

    Division Series - Los Angeles Dodgers v Atlanta Braves - Game One

  23. Dodgers rout Braves to take 2-1 lead in NLDS

    Oct 7, 2013, 12:11 AM EDT

    Atlanta Braves v Los Angeles Dodgers - Game Three

    It was a close back-and-forth affair between the Braves and Dodgers for the first three and a half innings in Game 3 of the NLDS in Los Angeles tonight. The game was tied at four-all, then the Dodger offense woke up, building a lead as large as nine runs entering the bottom of the ninth.…

  25. Braves leave Dan Uggla, Paul Maholm, and Scott Downs off playoff roster

    Oct 2, 2013, 2:16 PM EDT

    dan uggla getty

    As expected the Braves have left second baseman Dan Uggla off their NLDS roster, meaning they’d rather face the Dodgers without their highest-paid player. Uggla hit .179 this season and was completely helpless since returning from eye surgery, going 8-for-60 (.133) with 25 strikeouts. Along with Uggla the Braves also left off Paul Maholm, who…
