About time. There is no word yet on the financials of the deal but it is likely a one-year contract. The Braves had an opening in right field once Nick Markakis opted out of the 2020 season and this certainly seems like an upgrade. The 29-year-old outfielder split the 2019 season between the Reds and Indians, totaling 24 homers and 19 steals. He's an enticing fantasy option in the middle of a dangerous Atlanta lineup right now.
