The hot stove isn’t really firing just yet in the world of Major League Baseball, but it’s getting close. The Atlanta Braves were involved in a few moves this week, and there is plenty to discuss on Episode 378 of the Battery Power Podcast.

Topics include the following:

  • A fond farewell to Jake Odorizzi and whether it was “worth it” to move on at this price
  • What should be made of Kolby Allard’s return?
  • Atlanta is up against the Competitive Balance Tax (CBT) and there are interesting potential implications to the team’s payroll spending
  • Nick Anderson gives the Braves a low-cost flyer with tangible upside out of the bullpen
  • Welcoming back an old friend in Jesse Chavez
  • What are the contract projections saying about Dansby Swanson?
  • The Braves have three competent catchers on the roster... but will it stay that way?
  • For some reason, there is (weird) discussion about trading Ronald Acuña Jr.
  • Is Vaughn Grissom a real candidate for the 2023 starting shortstop position?
  • Much, much more
