The Braves shake up the 40-man roster by adding a former Mariners & Yankees First Baseman

Ian Mejia

The Braves have claimed former Mariner Mike Ford off waivers from Seattle.

Ford is probably best known for his time with the Yankees, but he has spent time with Washington and San Fransisco as well. The Braves needed some first base depth in Gwinnett, so this move makes sense. Ford’s best season came as a rookie in 2019, clubbing 12 home runs and posting a .909 OPS over 50 games. He hasn’t shown much since, so I doubt he’s in Atlanta anytime soon.
