The Atlanta Braves had a relatively quiet day on the news front as the offseason rolls on. The international signing period opened on Monday, January 15 and will close on December 15. The Braves just took several guys off the board and are expected to sign a few more in the allotted time. Until then, we do have a couple of notes.

Braves Notes:
