Braves News:

The Braves reportedly made a $100M in-season offer to Dansby Swanson. Both parties began discussing a deal around the All-Star break.

Ronald Acuña Jr. was initially only reporting to the Venezuelan Winter League to work out with the team, but the Braves will now allow him to DH in five games.

Justyn-Henry Malloy and Austin Smith made the Arizona Fall League All-Star game.
