2019 Atlanta Braves Player Review: Brian McCann

Brian McCann, 2019 Atlanta Braves Player Review Brian McCann suffered an injury-plagued and unproductive 2018 season for Houston, only appearing in 63 games with 189 AB while sinking to career lows in AVG, OBP, and SLG.

2019 Atlanta Braves Player Review: Charlie Culberson

Well, all good things must come to an end, and after two solid seasons for Charlie Culberson in Atlanta, he was non-tendered on December 2nd. As of this writing, I’m not aware of any free agent interest in Culberson, so a reunion at a lesser amount is possible. Regardless, it’s likely he’ll end up on … Continue reading “2019 Atlanta Braves Player Review: Charlie Culberson”

2019 Atlanta Braves Player Review: Adeiny Hechavarria

By the winter of 2019, Adeiny Hechavarria had firmly established himself as a no-hit all-glove shortstop, with a career slash line around .250/.290/.320 in about 2800 MLB ABs.

2019 Atlanta Braves Player Review: Mike Soroka

Who Is He? It was in August 2016 that I settled into my seat behind the visitor’s dugout in Asheville to watch a game with the Rome 9.

2019 Atlanta Braves Player Review: Bryse Wilson

July 3rd, 2019. The only start for the MLB club that Bryse Wilson showed his potential. 59 of his 87 pitches were fastballs, averaging 95.2 and topping out at 97. The difference in this start than his other appearances in 2020? He could locate his fastball. And no, I’m not implying that Bryse Wilson has … Continue reading “2019 Atlanta Braves Player Review: Bryse Wilson”

2019 Atlanta Braves Player Review: Grant Dayton

Grant Dayton doesn’t have enough career major league innings to draw significant conclusions from. At age 32, that fact may be the significant conclusion. However, what little we have to go on is promising. Dayton was 28 before he hit the majors in 2016. The left handed reliever combined for 50 innings in 2 seasons … Continue reading “2019 Atlanta Braves Player Review: Grant Dayton”

2019 Atlanta Braves Player Review: Ender Inciarte

2019 Review 2019 was a bust for Ender Inciarte. He pulled his hamstring and missed about a month in 2016, but he was remarkably healthy in 2017 and 2018, appearing in 157 and 156 games, respectively. But after a 2018 season that saw both his offensive and defensive performance slip, 2019 was a big year … Continue reading “2019 Atlanta Braves Player Review: Ender Inciarte”
