Braves manager Brian Snitker reportedly expects to have word on whether he will return in 2019 by the end of the week. Snitker managed the Braves to a 90-72 regular season record in route to an NL East title, the club’s first since 2013.
After signing with the Braves on a minor league deal, Anibal Sanchez was a very pleasant surprise this season and now reportedly intends to continue playing, with a preference to remain in Atlanta. Sanchez’ performance in 2018 earned him a start in Game 2 of the Division Series at Los Angeles, which highlights both his effectiveness this season and the Braves’ dire need for front-line starting pitching if they are to compete in the postseason.
Braves No. 6 prospect Cristian Pache (No. 68 overall) tallied three hits, an RBI and scored two runs as Peoria won for a second time in as many games.
Not really baseball-related, but uh… yeah.
