Rumor: Braves interested in Michael Brantley

It appears that the Braves have interest in Michael Brantley:

This information comes from an old MLB scout. This is far from a “done deal”, but it seems like a very possibility that Brantley could become a Braves. It certainly makes sense.

Brantley enjoyed a return to form for the Indians in 2018 after only being able to play 101 games total the two seasons prior. He continued to show he is a dominant contact hitter in this league as he slashed .309 with 17 homers and 76 RBI.

What would the Braves get in Brantley? A very similar hitter to Nick Markakis with marginally fresher legs. Brantley is a career .295 hitter and has been an All-Star the past two seasons. He would provide the Braves with a similarly consistent bat, at the same position, less removed from his prime. A three-year deal as reported would be a great option for the Braves.

The hot stove keeps churning!
