    Justin Upton was being dangled by the Diamondbacks forever, but he’s finally out the door. It’s a five-for-two deal: Braves get: (OF) Justin Upton, (3B) Chris Johnson Diamondbacks get: (3B) Martin Prado, (RHP) Randall Delgado, (SS) Nick Ahmed, (RHP) Zeke Spruill, and (1B) Brandon Drury. For all the talk that the Diamondbacks’ leverage was gone when Upton…

  2. UPDATE: The Braves have acquired Justin Upton for Martin Prado, Randall Delgado and prospects

    upton, justin (getty)

    UPDATE: The return is … interesting. Mark Bowman reports that the Braves are getting not just Justin Upton, but Chris Johnson as well. In return, Atlanta is sending them Martin Prado, Randall Delgado, shortstop prospect Nick Ahmed and starting pitcher Zeke Spruill. Much bigger trade than expected. We’ll break it down shortly. UPDATE: Jon Heyman reports…

    Yesterday Buster Olney reported that the Braves and Diamondbacks were in serious negotiations about Justin Upton. Now we have some backfill from Ken Rosenthal and David O’Brien about where that stands. From O’Brien, on the kind of haul the Diamondbacks may get: Confirmed that #Braves have indeed made offer to Dbacks for Justin Upton. I…

  4. The National League is poised to have some excellent rotations

    Dec 4, 2012, 12:32 PM EST

    Stephen Strasburg, Gio Gonzalez

    Even with Zack Greinke and Anibal Sanchez still up for grabs, the National League already seems set to sport some excellent rotations in 2013. How about this for the top four: Nationals: Stephen Strasburg, Gio Gonzalez, Jordan Zimmermann, Dan Haren, Ross Detwiler Giants: Matt Cain, Madison Bumgarner, Tim Lincecum, Ryan Vogelsong, Barry Zito Phillies: Roy…

  5. How about an Upton-Upton-Heyward outfield in Atlanta?

    Nov 25, 2012, 6:28 PM EST

    Justin Upton

    We know the Braves are in hot pursuit of free agent B.J. Upton, who could well be the next top free agent to sign. It makes one wonder if they’d considering pairing the Upton brothers and bringing in Justin from Arizona. On the surface, it seems like a great idea. Neither Upton brother has quite…

    Because the non-All-Stars deserve recognition too — even when they’d prefer to hide their faces — here’s a look at some midpoint leaderboards in reverse order. OPS 1. Dee Gordon (SS LAD): .562 2.

    Philadelphia Phillies starting pitcher Lee points towards a pop out by New York Mets Nickeas during the third inning of their MLB National League baseball game in New York

    Phillies 9, Mets 2: Cliff Lee stood to lose yet another one, as he and the Phillies were down 2-0 entering the seventh, but three runs in each of the seventh, eighth and ninth innings saved his bacon. First win of the year for Lee. Marlins 7, Brewers 6: On Tuesday Milwaukee beat Miami in…

  8. 2012 midseason awards: NL Rookie of the Year

    Jul 4, 2012, 6:47 PM EST

    Bryce Harper

    If the NL is going to narrow the talent gap with the AL in the coming years, it doesn’t really show up here. Sure, there’s a likely superstar playing well in Bryce Harper, but the AL can seemingly cancel him out with Mike Trout, who is playing a whole lot better. Beyond Harper, it’s a…

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

    Jun 7, 2012, 5:50 AM EST

    Zack Greinke

    Brewers 8, Cubs 0: Zack Greinke mowed ‘em down (7 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 12K). That young man is gonna make a lot of money when he hits free agency this fall. Blue Jays 4, White Sox 0: Brandon Morrow tosses a two-hit shutout. Dude has really put it all together this year. Braves…

  10. The Braves option Kris Medlen triple-A, call up Jose Constanza

    When you’ve lost eight straight and two of your young starters are sucking eggs, you gotta do something. Today the Braves did, sending Kris Medlen down to triple-A Gwinnett and calling up outfielder Jose Constanza. Now, Medlen is not one of the ones who has been sucking eggs. Indeed, he’s been just fine in a…

  11. Tim Hudson set to make season debut Sunday

    After throwing 101 pitches in his fourth and final minor-league rehab start Tim Hudson has been cleared to return from back surgery and the 36-year-old will rejoin the Braves’ rotation Sunday versus the Pirates. Hudson underwent surgery in November and will slide into the rotation spot created by the Braves demoting Jair Jurrjens to Triple-A…

    Texas Rangers v Detroit Tigers

    Rangers 3, Tigers 2: If only there was some form of technology that could rectify bad calls. Some magical device that could allow officials to see what really happened on a baseball field when the umpires miss it. A bit of sorcery that could put right what was wrong and prevent a game from being…

  13. Tim Hudson to make second rehab start Thursday

    Tim Hudson

    Tim Hudson allowed two runs over three innings in his first minor-league rehab start Saturday at Single-A and he’s scheduled to take the mound for his second rehab outing Thursday.

    Chipper Jones has already resumed facing live pitching, less than two weeks removed from arthroscopic surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee. According to Mark Bowman of MLB.com, Jones felt “real good” taking swings against teammate Randall Delgado in a simulated game this afternoon at Citi Field. While the 39-year-old believes he…

  15. It sucks to be Yohan Flande right now

    Apr 3, 2012, 7:16 PM EST

    Yohan Flande

    The Braves got down to 25 players Monday, demoting pitchers Cory Gearrin and Julio Teheran to Triple-A as part of their cuts. Left as the 12th pitcher on the staff was Yohan Flande, who appeared all set to make his major league debut after spending six years in the minors. Then came the bad news…

  16. Braves name Tommy Hanson as Opening Day starter

    Tommy Hanson AP

    Mark Bowman of MLB.com passes along word that Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez has officially tabbed Tommy Hanson to start Opening Day against the Mets next Thursday. It will be the first Opening Day assignment of his career. Hanson was limited to just 22 starts last year due to right shoulder problems and missed the first…

  18. Tigers hit nine homers in win over Braves

    Mar 4, 2012, 5:26 PM EST

    Prince Fielder

    On Saturday, the Tigers pitched a one-hitter in a 2-0 victory over the Braves. Today, they went about things a bit differently, crushing nine homers in a 18-3 rout. The rundown: Alex Avila – two-run off Randall Delgado in the first Ryan Raburn – solo off Julio Teheran in the second Brennan Boesch – solo…

  19. Mike Minor: start me in the majors or trade me

    Feb 24, 2012, 10:30 AM EST

    Minor_Mike

    Braves starter Mike Minor is likely to be the Braves’ fifth starter. But yesterday he made it clear that, if there’s any doubt about that, he’d just as soon be traded: “Overall, it’s not really – it’s about making the team, but if … I can control my third pitch and have a decent fourth…

  20. Tim Hudson expects to miss first month after back surgery

    Feb 19, 2012, 7:26 PM EST

    Tim Hudson

    The Braves’ vaunted rotation depth will be tested in April, as Tim Hudson expects to miss at least the first month of the season following back surgery on Nov. 28. Hudson hoped to avoid the surgery and thus didn’t have it until two months after the Braves wrapped their 2011 season. That delay will cost…

  21. 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…
