WSB-TV in Atlanta is reporting that a dead body was found in a walk-in freezer at SunTrust Park on Tuesday. The body of a third-party contract worker was discovered by another worker.
Cobb County police are investigating and working with the Braves to uncover more information.
If anything new is discovered, we’ll update you here. It may be a good idea for the Braves to discontinue the between-innings race between a fan and “The Freeze,” at least temporarily.
The Cubs will activate reliever Craig Kimbrel ahead of Thursday afternoon’s game against the Braves, Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic reports.
Kimbrel, 31, ended a seven-month stint in free agency, agreeing to a three-year, $43 million contract with the Cubs earlier this month. He has made four minor league appearances, allowing one earned run on two hits and a walk with four strikeouts in 3 2/3 innings.
With an aggregate 3.96 ERA entering Wednesday, the Cubs’ bullpen has been among the better bullpens in the league. Adding Kimbrel, one of the greatest closers of all-time, certainly can’t hurt and will give them some stability in save situations.
