    I figured when Grandal came off the board that JTR wouldn’t be far behind. Marlins are said to be in substantive talks right now with 6 teams Braves being one of them.

    Buster Olney:

    ATL continues to be in discussions on OF A.J. Pollock, among other FA OF. If they got him, their lineup could look something like this, depending on where Acuna bats:
    LF Acuna
    3B Donaldson
    1B Freeman
    RF Pollock
    2B Albies
    CF Inciarte
    C Flowers/McCann
    SS Swanson

    The Carter Stewart decision in ATL's favor means that the Braves would need to give up their second pick (about No. 62), rather than their third-round pick, if they sign A.J. Pollock, who is tied to pick compensation.

    I'd be ok with Pollock depending on the money/years, would be a solid addition.

    Let's sign Pollock, trade for JTR, trade for Gray/Frazier, trade Teheran and O'day for whatever we can get and sign Kimbrel if his market completely dries up... doubtful, but hey... it'd be fun

    Pollock is solid if he can stay healthy, who are other possible fits for AJ?

    It would be pretty remarkable if AA ends up getting Pollock at the same discount the Brewers got Grandal.

    Would he still cost a pick on a 1 yr deal?

    Waters is intersting too. Would prefer a guy that projects to more power though. (2017 Draft Thread)

    If they don't make additions they can expect the same 3-5 win improvement they saw last year. That makes the Braves a 75-78 win team. (What's the best we could hope for in 2018?)

    Yes. In the event he signs for less than $50 million, the D-Backs wouldn't get a compensatory pick until after Competitive Balance Round B (after the 2nd Round).

    Same goes for the Dodgers' return for the Grandal signing.

    I could see a Pollock and JTR scenario both going down pretty close to each other. Pollock should be more durable in a corner outfield spot. Our lineup would be super RH heavy.

    I know he’s had some injury issues (though I think one of those was a freak thing), but I like Pollock. Depending of course, on the contract, I would like to see him in Atlanta.

    2 of his 3 main injuries were freak things... breaking an elbow diving... and breaking his thumb... before breaking his thumb, he was on an absolutely insane pace last year.... would assume that probably hampered his power a bit when he came back.

    JTR and Pollock would make for a damn good offseason.
