You will not be surprised to hear that Kevin Youkilis’ agent, Joe Bick, was asked about the Bobby Valentine comments:
“I will not dignify his quotes by responding to something so far off base on so many different levels”
Well, that is a response, but I suppose we’ll that go.
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.
