  • Braves designated 1B Adrian Gonzalez for assignment.<p><b>Advice</b>: Gonzalez was acquired from the Dodgers on Saturday in a trade that swapped multiple bad contracts, but there was no place for him to play with the Braves. The 35-year-old batted just .242/.287/.355 with three homers in an injury-shortened 2017 campaign and might have a hard time finding a job that guarantees him regular playing time in 2018.</p>

  • Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports that the Braves have acquired Adrian Gonzalez, Scott Kazmir, Brandon McCarthy, Charlie Culberson and cash considerations in exchange for outfielder Matt Kemp.<p><b>Advice</b>: Gonzalez fell out of favor in Los Angeles after the emergence of Cody Bellinger and opted not to stay with the club for their postseason run while he was recovering from his back injury.
