With 2023 just beginning, Atlanta Braves news is running thin as the offseason trudges on. The most recent Braves moves came on New Year’s Eve, as two minor leaguers agreed to contracts.

28-year-old INF Mitchell Tolman
29-year-old 3B Joshua Fuentes
The Braves signed second baseman Mitchell Tolman to a minor league deal on December 15. On December 31, the 28-year-old was assigned to the Gwinnett Stripers. Through parts of seven minor league seasons, Tolman maintains a career .263 batting average.
The organization also signed third baseman Joshua Fuentes to a minor league deal. The 29-year-old righty was also assigned to Triple-A Gwinnett. Although most of his playing time has come in the minor leagues, Fuentes does have 149 career big league games under his belt.
Together, the two aim to add depth to an already-stacked farm system.
