Depth of Atlanta Braves gives them plenty of options at trade deadline

Donaldson was the Atlanta Braves major offseason acquisition signing a one year $23 million dollar contract. There were plenty of Braves fans pleading for the Braves to do more and spend more in the free-agent market.

His presence has taken the pressure off the team that would have been felt during Ender Inciarte’s absence.

After a rough start, the fans disapproval only seemed to get louder and more bountiful. However, after coming off a year where he only played 52 games and a season plagued by injury, a slow start should have been expected.

Now he is flaming hot hitting 5 home runs in his last six games and 21 on the season.
