Unfortunately for all involved, the 34-year-old lefty has just not looked the same in 2019 for the Atlanta Braves.
The decision to release Jonny Venters is not difficult if you look at this numbers, but you have to consider how tough this was for the front office, Venters, and fans who love him.
#Braves re-signed Jerry Blevins and gave Jonny Venters his unconditional release. The latter part is difficult for anyone who knows Jonny. Because he isn’t just a good guy, he’s genuinely one of nicest, highest-character individuals I’ve met in my entire life.
