    Interested to see what Snit does with the lineup tonight with Matz pitching and if he goes heavy on the righties and puts Chuck and Duvall in the corners with Ronnie in center and Johan at short or if he sticks with Ender.

    That last Sheets outing was great. Announces he's retiring before the start, comes out throwing 95 and shoves it up the Pirates' ass for an inning and calls it a career.

    Just another great example of looking at far too small a sample size and drawing bad conclusions

    Before his last 3 games, he had a 126 wRC+ in August and a 150 wRC+ since July 17th

    So he's had 3 bad games at the plate

    I mean that is quite the difference in the top and bottom. The SS situation is definitely the scary one for me. That really hurts us with all the ground ball/pitch to contact pitchers we have. Particularly some of the critical bullpen guys and Kuechel/Soroka. They're good but not having Dansby out there lessens their effectiveness. Idk what you can do however. We may need to get creative because we know what we have in Charlie and Camargo and it ain't good.

    remember when they said dansby would have played the very next day after getting hurt if it was the playoffs

    now there is no timeline. just don't expect him back this season and hope to be pleasantly surprised because the situation stinks

    Update on Trey Harris:

    32nd rounder Trey Harris. Not much was expected of Harris out of Missouri, more of an organizational type who has a good locker room presence, strong baseball smarts, and personable nature that could be a valuable piece to minor league teams. Spoiler alert, children, Trey Harris did not like that idea very much. He’s still a cool cat, only now he’s a hot hitter who has made some key changes that have sparked a 180 to his career. Harris has been a leader on and off the field, and the results speak for themselves at every level he’s played.

    Harris started off his professional career by dominating rookie ball exactly how he should given his age, but it was his chances in Rome that drew real attention. He struck out less than 14% of the time in 2018, then in 2019 repeated those numbers almost exactly while showing a .228 ISO and hitting .366/.437/.594. Harris received a promotion to High-A, and he was only slowed marginally hitting .303/.388/.443 in 34 games. After hitting .429 over his past six games he was promoted to Mississippi, and finally it seemed he had reached a challenge. Through his first nine games he only had a .562 OPS and didn’t draw any walks. Death, taxes, Trey Harris hot streaks and he has hit .348 over his past twelve games with six extra base hits and a 16.3% strikeout rate. Harris is top five in minor league baseball in batting average, ranks 16th in hits, and ranks a cool third in all of minor league baseball with a 171 wRC+. Harris has been easily the biggest eye opener of the season because the man can just hit baseballs, and with twelve home runs in primarily hitter friendly leagues it’s fair to expect Harris to be a 25 home run bat with the Triple-A ball. If Harris continues to hit he will find himself in the major leagues, and even though it’s still more likely that he’s a bench bat there is ever growing reason to believe the Braves stole a starting-caliber outfield in the 33rd round. He’s stated that changes to his commitment to every pitch of every at bat has paid massive dividends and he’s showing a consistent hit tool that outperformed, statistically at least, every single other position player from the 2018 draft. Only one position player signed from the 32nd round, Kevin Pillar, has ever gone on to produce 10+ career WAR. If the Braves get lucky, they may have found the second.

    Jim Bowden did his early 2020 free agent rankings. Grain of salt, etc.

    7. Josh Donaldson, 3B
    2019 stats:
    Slash line: .261/.377/.513 HR: 27 RBI: 69 OPS+: 126 WAR: 3.7

    Alex Anthopoulos’s best move as Braves GM so far has been the signing of free-agent third baseman Josh Donaldson to a one-year, $23 million pact. Donaldson has more than lived up to the contract, providing the middle-of-the-lineup right-handed power the team so desperately needed and above-average defense. The Braves were unable to get a club option thrown in at the back of his contract, meaning he’ll be back on the market looking for a multi-year deal — and with top prospect Austin Riley close to being major-league ready, it’s unlikely that the Braves will try to bring Donaldson back. His mental toughness, and the edge he brings to clubhouses, is special, as is his ability to perform with the game on the line. He’ll probably have to wait until after Anthony Rendon signs but should do quite well on a shorter-term, high average annual salary, but he’s definitely getting a multi-year contract this time.

    Teams expected to bid: Braves, Nationals, Rangers and Mets.

    Early best fit: Nationals. If they aren’t able to bring Rendon back, then I can see the team pivoting quickly to Donaldson.

    What if we threw Donaldson's 23 at Rendon long term? Can't imagine we'd have to go too much higher.

    I'd guess Rendon gets into the $30M per range. Arenado got 8/$260M with an opt-out. Altuve got 5/$151M.

    I would say AA's best moves have been the long term Ozzie and Acuna deals. Those are franchise defining contracts.

    Not sure about Altuve but NA signed at 27. Think Rendon will be 30. I'd think he gets similar yearly money but fewer years.

    Donaldson plus the savings from non tendering WOAT closer Shane Greene covers it.

    If you're the Braves, do you exercise Teheran's $12 MM option after this season? It seems like he pitches with lots of traffic, but he does go every 5th day.

    Kiley McDaniel
    They could, but you could also decline, wait the whole offseason and maybe scoop him up for like 1 year $6M, so I don't think they will



    Could you slap some tool grades on Trey Harris? I get that he's not a future star, but it's hard to get any sense of his athleticism, defensive value, hit/power projections etc.

    Kiley McDaniel
    squatty framed LF without a plus tool but he's hitting and has potential 20 HR power
    That's basically the same as Dustin Peterson who was hitting until he wasn't, to give you an idea of the margin for error

    His peripherals are pretty terrible and he doesn't have elite stuff anymore.

    People are going to shy away from him and bet he doesn't end up in the top 10 in BABIP and top 20 in strand rate on an annual basis.

    That's probably not his market value, but it's also not a bad gamble on JT either. He's not what teams that are heavy into pitching analytics are looking for, and some of his peripherals aren't super pretty. Add in the declining velo, and I think there's real room to get value. Not without risk, but still.
