The hot stove was rather frigid on Friday as Winter Meetings are behind us and the next notable offseason date comes on January 13, where players who are arbitration-eligible will configure a salary with their clubs. Aside from the signing of Joe Jimenez, the Atlanta Braves had a quiet few days at the Winter Meetings and the club’s biggest question mark still remains at shortstop.

Carlos Correa and Dansby Swanson are the last two shortstops of the “Big Four” that are unclaimed, and *hopefully* the shortstop position will soon be filled. However, MLB’s Mark Bowman reported that negotiations between Swanson and the Braves have been slim since the offseason began. Until then, there are a few news and notes from the Braves organization.
