    Craig Mish, Fishy Tall Tail/Tales writer, claims Braves still in on J.T. Realmuto. Price remains high with speculation A.A. has offered more than what they got for Yelich last year(he had four years of control, while J.T. is only through 2020). Austin Riley seems to be the centerpiece in discussions. Atlanta doesn’t want to part with Albies. Speculation revolves around Ian Anderson in place of Ozzie, and a mid-level prospect included. Time will tell, and like Detroit’s Nick Castellanos, price should come down.

    Y. Grandal to Milwaukee.

    Six teams bidding on Realmuto, including Atlanta. Things heating up, per reports. Looking like the Fish want to move him before Spring Training?

    Braves trying to wait Realmuto out.
    AJ Pollock apparently willing to come down from wanting 5 yrs. Sources have Atl. in talks with his agent. Could bat fourth in lineup between Freeman and Albies, if Donaldson is in the two spot.

    Realmuto agrees to 5.9 m. Was projected to get 6.1 m. in arbitration.

    Braves also have a trio of new deals today. Starter Kevin Gausman agreed at $9.35MM, righty Dan Winkler at $1.61MM, and lefty Sam Freeman at $1.375MM, per David O’Brien of The Athletic (Twitter link).

    The Freeman(gas can), I didn’t care too much about. What say you gents.?

    I'm ok with Freeman. He started to look like himself towards the end of the year. It is also a non-guaranteed contract so if he doesn't make the team, then he becomes a free agent I believe.

    B.A. Top 10 for June, Amateur Draft:
    • 1. Adley Rutschman, C, Oregon State
    • 2. Bobby Witt, Jr., SS, Texas HS
    • 3. C.J. Abrams, SS, Georgia HS
    • 4. Andrew Vaughn, 1B, Cal
    • 5. Riley Greene, OF, Florida HS
    • 6. Shea Langeliers, C, Baylor
    • 7. Corbin Carroll, OF, Washington HS
    • 8. Josh Jung, 3B, Texas Tech
    • 9. Graeme Stinson, LHP, Duke
    • 10. Bennan Malone, RHP, Florida HS
    Braves have 9th pick, 4 picks in first 100 selections.

    Mish and others think Realmuto could go to Atl. or Dodgers by the end of next week.
    Braves could get a reliever thrown in, on a 4 or 5 for the Fish 2 players. Marlins want a catcher for their young staff. Could be Flowers, included. Atlanta does not want to part w/ Albies or Riley. Ian Anderson looks like the main bait, and Max Fried rumored.

    Atlanta has committed 110m. to their payroll, after all contracts are done.
    20-25m. is left in the budget, however some of that will be saved for the trade deadline.


    Cristian Pache makes MLB Pipeline’s 2019 All-Defensive team
    Braves’ outfielder Cristian Pache has been named to MLB Pipeline’s All-Defensive team for the second consecutive season. Per Jonathan Mayo, Pache received more mention than any other prospect. He joins the Nationals Victor Robles and Tigers’ Jake Rogers as the only repeat members.

    Wanted to get your predictions for the near future, of the Braves offseason needs?
    We know they filled the second catcher slot. Added a 3B, to free up Camargo. Mainly, SP veteran, Top Shelf RP, Corner OF, are the suggested acquisitions.

    My three additions:
    -Sonny Gray, last year on his deal. Good road splits. Trading more I’ntl. $ to NY.
    -Cody Allen(although I expect Atl. to cut Vizcaino in Spring saving most of the 4.8 m.). Chad Sobotka, will break camp and become our go to guy. Corbin Clouse, by mid-season will be up, and setting up the seventh inning.
    -Nick Markakis, one year deal. We didn’t want to give up the 60th selection w/AJ Pollock signing.

    Wondering if Nick Castellanos(OF)from Detroit is the centerpiece of a deal with Atlanta? Alex A. is telling his A-listers, he’s close to a deal with another club.

    Yankees sign Adam Ottavino. Close to dealing Sonny Gray to either A’s or Padres. Reds appear to be out. David O’Brien says Braves haven’t talked on him for a while.

    Not in the Major Leagues. He is a very good infielder. Projected to be above average due to his soft hands and strong arm, in the OF.

    With our advanced analytics, for how well we position our guys properly, Markakis found a Gold Glove last year. Ender got one, too(although he has all the defensive tools).
