One of Braves Country’s favorite guys, Charlie Culberson, is getting another chance, as it’s being reported he signed a minor league deal with the Tampa Bay Rays:

Charlie Culberson did just about everything for the Braves, including pitching in a few spots. He was very well-liked in the clubhouse and provided a young team with a veteran presence. After leaving Atlanta following the 2020 season, Culberson had solid back-to-back seasons for the Rangers.

He slashed .243/.296/.381/.676 in 90 games for Texas in 2021 and followed it up with a .252/.283/.357/.640 slash line the next season. Culberson’s days as a starter may be over, but he has a chance to work with a good coaching staff in Tampa and catch on in a reserve role.

Good luck, Charlie!
