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.

Batting champion Luis Arraez beats Marlins in salary arbitration

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — AL batting champion Luis Arraez won his salary arbitration case and will get a $6.1 million salary from the Miami Marlins, who acquired the infielder from the Minnesota Twins last month.

Miami argued for a $5 million salary during a hearing before John Stout, Mark Burstein and Scott Buchheit. Arraez received a raise from $2.2 million.

Arraez hit .316 with eight homers, 49 RBIs and a .795 OPS last year for Minnesota, starting 61 games at first base, 34 at designated hitter and 31 at second. The 25-year-old was traded on Jan. 20 for starting pitcher Pablo Lopez and a pair of prospects: infielder Jose Salas and outfielder Byron Chourio.

Arraez is eligible for free agency after the 2026 season.

Seattle defeated Diego Castillo in the first salary arbitration decision this year, and the relief pitcher will get a raise to $2.95 million rather than his request of $3,225,000.

A decision is being held for Los Angeles Angels outfielder Hunter Renfroe.
