Braves News: Travis d’Arnaud extension, Forrest Wall gets the call, and more

Atlanta Braves news and notes from Tuesday

MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at Atlanta Braves Larry Robinson-USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Braves signed catcher Travis d’Arnaud to a one-year, $8M extension on Tuesday. The deal includes an $8M club option in 2025 with no buyout.

“I’m thankful that the Braves were thinking the same thing about me and wanted me to stay,” d’Arnaud said following his extension. “It’s an honor. I just try to be a good person everyday and I’m thankful all these guys love me as much as I love them.”

“When I leave my home I truly can’t wait to get to the ballpark everyday, and that’s not very common, so that’s another reason why I wanted to stay,” he added. “I wanted to come back and I was hoping they wanted me to come back.”

d’Arnaud quickly became a fan favorite upon his arrival in Atlanta. Despite a 2020 season with limited fans, Travis earned the National League Silver Slugger Award. In 2022, he was an All-Star. He has taken on the backup role behind Sean Murphy, but has still managed 36 hits this season across 136 at-bats.
