As per my usual Thursday afternoon routine, I’m
going to be on the Paul
and Tom Show at at HotStove.com at 2pm. Today’s topics will include the Hanley Ramirez business, a little Josh Beckett and other baseball topics that stay crunchy in milk.
Come for the service, but stay for the legroom.
The Braves claimed lefty reliever Grant Dayton off waivers from the Dodgers, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Dayton, 29, underwent Tommy John surgery back in August and is almost certainly out for the entire 2018 season. The Braves, obviously, are making a longer-term play here by acquiring him, as he is under team control through 2022.
Over parts of two seasons in the majors, Dayton has a 3.42 career ERA with 59 strikeouts and 18 walks in 50 innings.
