    He never pitched again after the injury and the Braves have his complete medical records. With such a low price, It begs the questions whether the Braves have any confidence that he can be healthy and effective next year.

    Yeah. Shoulder injuries are also pretty bad. Pitchers can come back from TJ but shoulder injuries are rough.

    I think AA is keeping Cal Rat despite the surgery just because of control years. Not much of a risk since he's still cheap.

    Quite evidently, they value another free roster spot higher than what they expect out of Anderson in 2024.

    Beyond injury, his k-rate was way down, and we were actively wondering how long he could sustain his very good ERA/FIP before he went down with injury midseason—so it’s hard to strongly disagree with that assessment. Still he was cheap, arb-eligible again in 2024, and still likely to be somewhat useful this coming year and next. Guess we’ll have to see how they use that roster spot, ultimately, before evaluating their evaluations.

    Wright also has a much higher upside if he can return successfully.

    Didn't see it elsewhere, but may have missed it. Braves did not add any of their Rule 5 eligibles to the 40-man roster. de Avila, Franklin, Quintero, and Owens were the most notable among the group. I don't see the Braves losing any of them.

    Forgot to add that roster now sits at 36 and that includes Allard, Tromp, Williams, and Wall. Add to that, it is likely that Wright, Perdomo, and Murfee will go on the 60-day IL on the last day of spring training and you can see how much roster flexibility exists.

    He’s clearing room.

    No clue what for- but there’s zero reason to give away Anderson at that price

    That's one I was very wrong about. I thought he would rake when he was drafted. That draft is ugly.

    Daniel Vogelbach is a nice option for pitch runner. 🤣

    Depending on price, I wouldn't mind signing Senzel, but only to a minor league deal with a spring training invite. His downfall has been an marked inability to hit RHP. He's not great against LHP (.794 OPS for career), but he can play 2B, 3B, LF, and CF.

    Like striker42, I thought he'd be a solid BA guy who wouldn't hit for a lot of power. But it's never materialized.

    I think a rebuilding team will promise him more consistent at bats with the hopes of flipping him later

    I definitely thought he could be a Bill Mueller type, but good lord, has he been bad. Lot of injury issues, but still, I would have taken the over on a .239/.302/.369 line when he was drafted.

    Senzel is one of those ideas that sounds clever when you kick it around on a message board -- a young super-utility guy and former second overall draft pick who can just settle in as a depth piece with no pressure. But it's hard to imagine him figuring it out as a bench piece on a team that hardly ever plays its bench pieces.

    The Braves are working on some trades. Given the timing, it could involve Kyle Wright or other arb-eligible

    Kyle Wright to KC for Jackson Kowar. As a Gator fan who watched a lot of Kowar, he throws hard and has a filthy changeup. The rest is questionable. Likely has options though, and I trust the Braves way more to develop him than KC.

    Morosi said the Brewers were talking to multiple teams about Brandon Woodruff.

    Would be a funny deal if it was Wright for Woodruff. That’d be a lot to shoulder
