The Braves may not have many players in arbitration, as they traded or non-tendered most, but we got some news on that Wednesday. The league and union agreed to move the arbitration exchange deadline up 24 hours, from Friday evening to Thursday evening. Additionally, some national TV games were announced, with the Braves featuring in a handful. Atlanta will be on one of the first eight Sunday Night Baseball (ESPN) broadcasts (the only ones announced as of yet) and eight national FOX or FS1 broadcasts throughout the season.
