    AP source: Twins, SS Andrelton Simmons agree to $10.5M deal

    The Minnesota Twins and slick-fielding shortstop Andrelton Simmons agreed Tuesday night to a $10.5 million, one-year contract, according to a person familiar with the negotiations. The 31-year-old Simmons, a four-time Gold Glove winner, played the last five seasons with the Los Angeles Angels after spending his first four years in the major leagues with the Atlanta Braves. Provided that third baseman Josh Donaldson, last year's prize free agent landed by the Twins, can overcome the calf injury that limited him in 2020, the defense on the left side of the infield in Minnesota ought to be a pitcher's dream.

    Former, current Braves remember Hank Aaron during emotional memorial service

    A small group gathered near the Hank Aaron mementos inside the halls of Truist Park on Tuesday for "A Celebration of Henry Louis Aaron," a memorial service celebrating the life and enduring legacy of the late Hall of Famer and American icon. The nearly 45-minute service included words from former and current Braves, like manager Brian Snitker, Marquis Grissom and Chipper Jones. Video tributes were shared by Tom Glavine, John Smoltz, Dusty Baker, Dale Murphy and Freddie Freeman.

    Baseball gathers behind home plate to honor Hammerin' Hank

    Brian Snitker choked back tears as he remembered Hank Aaron's affection for those who didn't possess his unparalleled talent on the baseball field. During his post-playing career running the Atlanta Braves farm system, the Hammer had a penchant for looking beyond the can't-miss prospects. "He always wanted to move a player up, and he preferred that it wasn't the so-called bonus babies," said Snitker, who has managed the Braves since 2016 and got his start in the dugout thanks to Aaron.
