Remember that one time when Canada was in Florida? No? The “Toronto” Blue Jays are opening their season in TD Ballpark in Dunedin, Florida because it’s so close and convenient to Toronto. We do have some action on the transaction front.
Today’s Braves Transactions
Remember that time when no one was reading into the Tyler Matzek signing, yet I was raising the roof? I’m not there on Trevor Kelley, but I think this is more than just an MiLB depth signing. The Braves are in desperate need to find a dependable RH reliever and Kelley has MLB potential (of which he hasn’t reached yet). We shall see…
Don’t fret on the Mike Soroka news as it’s retroactive to the beginning of the year which changes nothing on his timetable. While Sean Newcomb was the one that really needed the 40-man spot, Edgar Santana is the real beneficiary here. Santana is a FB/SL combo that was on his way to a good career before he got busted for PEDs. It’s been so long since he’s pitched in the bigs that there’s really no logical guess on where his velocity sits, but anything’s better than Nate Jones right now.
