Braves agree to deals with two minor league free agents

Drew Lugbauer

The Braves have come to terms with two minor leaguers — catcher Joe Hudson and infielder Hudson Potts.

Hudson (Joe, not Potts) seems to be something the Braves sorely need in AAA — depth at the catcher position. At 31, Hudson is a career minor leaguer — he has 30 career MLB at-bats, his most recent coming in 2020 for the Mariners. Regardless, he can still provide value as a veteran guy that can mentor a shuffling staff in Gwinnett.

Hudson Potts is actually a former first-round pick of the Padres, and one of their former top prospects. He’s only 24 and has yet to reach the majors, so he’s absolutely a depth signing for a AAA squad that frankly doesn’t have any. There might still be some upside there.
