Braves: Atlanta targeting Dominican Shortstop Ambioris Tavarez

Vaughn Grissom

Atlanta is almost out of timeout for the penalties enforced by Rob Manfred regarding signing international players, and Alex Anthopoulos has his eyes on a big prize.


Before I talk about Tavarez, I still want to give a shoutout to Coppy. He never snitched on this team, and that’s why Major League Baseball came down so hard on Atlanta. John Hart sang like a canary, but Coppy stood tall and took his punishment like a man. Anyways, onto Ambioris Tavarez.

Considering the Braves forfeited $500,000 of international pool money when they signed Marcell Ozuna last season, Tavarez is likely one of the only international free agents Atlanta will be able to afford — that’s okay with me. Obviously, scouting reports on Dominican teenagers can be tough to find, but scouts rave over Tavarez’s bat speed and advanced raw power at such a young age. He has a cannon of an arm, so he may be moving to third base if he continues to grow at the rate he does. I’m doing a piece shortly updating Atlanta’s restrictions being lifted going forward.

Tavarez can officially be signed by Atlanta starting tomorrow, January 15th.
