Jose Bautista agrees to minor league deal with Braves, will play 3B

ATLANTA-BRAVES    
          Braves sign infielder Jose Bautista to minor league contract

BC-BBN-Braves-Bautista, 184Slugger Jose Bautista, Braves agree to minor league dealEds: APNewsNow. Updates. Will be updated.

The Atlanta Braves announced on Twitter that they have agreed to terms with the 37-year-old slugger on a one-year, minor-league contract for the 2018 season, and that he has reported to Atlanta's extended spring training complex in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. He went unsigned over the winter after batting.203 with 23 homers and 63 runs-batted in. Last year he put up his worse offensive season since his lost, early years in Pittsburgh, but still managed to hit 23 homers.

Primarily a right fielder over the past eight years, Bautista has appeared in just 12 games at third base since the start of the 2012 season.


A six-time All-Star and three-time Silver Slugger Award victor, Bautista owns a.250 (1,430-for-5,726) career average over 14 major league seasons with Baltimore (2004), Tampa Bay ('04), Kansas City ('04), Pittsburgh ('04-'08) and Toronto ('08-'17). He batted.240 with 40 homers, 114 RBIs and 110 walks in 2015, then dropped to.234 with 22 homers and 69 RBIs in 116 games the following year. And kudos to the Braves for at least attempting to think outside of the box and sign a guy who some fans might find enjoyable to watch in the event he can play his way into the lineup.

Former Toronto Blue Jays superstar Jose Bautista hopes there are a few bat flips left in his baseball career. He has four seasons with at least 100 RBIs.
