Jose Bautista signs with Braves

New, comments
MLB: Toronto Blue Jays at Tampa Bay Rays Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Jose Bautista has joined Alex Anthopoulos in at Atlanta. He signed a minor league deal with the Braves and it’s off to extended spring training in Florida. Apparently the plan is for him to play third base. If anyone should be giving Jose a chance it is Alex.

The Braves have been using Ryan Flaherty at third and he’s hitting great, .354/.446/.438.

I’d imagine Jose has some sort of agreement about being brought up by a certain date. The Braves play in Toronto June 19-20, so I hope he’s a Brave by then. It would be nice to see Jose there, as long as he doesn’t help them win. A home run in a game we win in a blow out would be perfect.

I’m always going to be fan so I’ll always hope the best for Jose. Good luck Jose.
