Braves: Guillermo Heredia is taking his talents to the KBO

Braves playoff roster

In some slightly heartbreaking news, Guillermo Heredia‘s departure from the Braves became official last night. Sure, he was already designated for assignment by the team last week to clear a spot on the 40-man roster, but I was holding out hope he might return on a minor-league deal. Despite not bringing much to the team in terms of production, the vibes he brought to the clubhouse were immaculate. There’s a reason the Braves hung onto him for so long.

Now, those vibes have found a new home — in another country, for that matter. It was reported last night that Heredia is taking his talents to the Korean Baseball Organization in 2023.

Like most of you, I know next to nothing about the KBO, but I do know this: they are getting a gem in Guillermo Heredia. I’m not sure I’ve ever loved a player \that hit a staggering .158 for my team more than him, but he will be missed by his teammates and the fans in Atlanta next season.
