Yahoo SportsCubs could look to add lefty reliever in next offseason move

While the Cubs have had one of the their most active offseasons in recent memory, notably adding Jameson Taillon, Dansby Swanson and Cody Bellinger, it's very possible that we could see more action from the North Siders leading up to Opening Day.

The ScoreAnthopoulos mourns Braves' lone sacrifice bunt of 2022: 'They were crushed'

The Atlanta Braves very nearly went the entire 2022 campaign without laying down a sacrifice bunt. Then, in the penultimate game of the season, Michael Harris II laid one down against the Miami Marlins."I was in the clubhouse, and our players were there. And they were all talking about it, and they were (saying), 'Don't do it! Don't do it!'" Braves general manager Alex Anthopoulos said Thursday, recalling the final road trip of the year. "They wanted to get the streak. They were crushed." "They were crushed." Alex Anthopoulos says players were well aware of the team's season-long streak without a sacrifice bunt heading into the final series in Miami.

It also proved to be unproductive, as Robbie Grossman and Dansby Swanson struck out to strand the runners in a scoreless fourth."(Going an entire season without a sacrifice bunt) was not by design, I don't want to speak for (manager Brian Snitker)," Anthopoulos continued, defending his veteran skipper. "We were up there in runs scored and so on, but there's times to do it."Though the Braves didn't avoid sacrifice bunts entirely, they still set the record for fewest in a single season with at least 160 games played. The 2022 Los Angeles Dodgers finished with three to rank second all time, while the 2022 Marlins and 2019 Los Angeles Angels are tied for third with four.With the full-time introduction of the universal designated hitter, the 2022 MLB season featured the fewest sacrifice bunts leaguewide in a full campaign since tracking began in 1895.Copyright © 2023 Score Media Ventures Inc.

TheRotoFeedAlex Anthopoulos Discusses Braves Shortstop Situation

The Braves watched Dansby Swanson depart in free agency this winter. They’ll enter the season with something of a question mark at shortstop for the first time in six years as a result. As things stand, shortstop looks like a two-man battle between young infielder Vaughn Grissom and utilityman Orlando Arcia. Grissom, 22, is seemingly the organization’s shortstop of…
