It’s been back and forth on the reports of whether the Braves are looking at Johnny Damon. David O’Brien is still playing up the Damon to Atlanta rumors.
Adam LaRoche signed a one year deal with Arizona earlier today. Considering it’s worth $4-5 million we could say it was a major goof to reject a two year $17.5 million contact with San Fransisco.
ESPN.com has also reported that the Braves have agreed with Melky Cabrera on a one year contract worth $3.1 million avoiding arbitration. It’s quite a raise for the projected left fielder who hit .274/.336/.416 with 13 homers, 28 doubles and 68 RBI while milking the Yankees for $1.4 million.
