26 Comments

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.

Cardinals president of baseball operations John Mozeliak confirmed on Sunday, to KMOX/1120 AM and StlToday.com, that pitcher Carlos Martínez underwent a “small procedure” to address discomfort in his right shoulder and encourage healing as well as a platelet-rich plasma injection.

Martínez, 28, began experiencing shoulder issues in 2018 which impacted his ability to pitch deep into games. Upon his return from the injured list in late August that year, the club moved him into the bullpen. He remained in the bullpen for 2019, making his season debut in May, and had a successful year, racking up 24 saves with a 3.17 ERA and a 53/18 K/BB ratio in 48 1/3 innings.

Martínez wants to start again and the Cardinals have said they will afford him the opportunity. He is expected to be on track to participate in spring training as usual.
