Braves expected to activate Robinson CanóYesterday, the Braves acquired Robinson Canó for cash considerations from the Padres. Canó is only on a minor-league deal, but according to Jon Heyman, the Braves are expected to add him to the active roster ahead of their series against the Mets.

Robinson Canó is super low-risk high-reward

Canó, whose entire $25 million salary is being paid by the Mets, was released by New York earlier this season before joining the Padres. He’s struggled in the majors, but he has hit well in AAA to the tune of a .333 average and .864 OPS.

The addition gives the Braves a left platoon option that can play second base. Orland Arcia had a nice start to the season, but he’s cooled off considerably. Hopefully, Canó can find some of the magic that made him an eight-time All-Star until Ozzie Albies returns. My expectations are low, but somehow, these smaller signings always seem to work out for Alex Anthopoulos.
