Matt Williams’ car hit by a guy fleeing the cops as Williams gives a radio interview

UPDATE: And now we have audio:

8:55 AM: The headline pretty much says it all. I haven’t heard the audio yet, but in the meantime:

The Nats have an early game today, so presumably he was on his way to the ballpark. We’ll post some audio when it starts to circulate. Assuming everyone is unharmed, anyway. Not really all that interested in posting audio of someone getting whiplash or worse.

But assuming no one was hurt, I think it is probably worth asking if Williams praised the guy who hit his car for his hustle in fleeing the cops.

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.
