Braves Agree to Terms with José Bautista on Minor-League Contract

A six-time All-Star and three-time Silver Slugger Award victor, Bautista owns a.250 (1,430-for-5,726) career average over 14 major league seasons with Baltimore (2004), Tampa Bay ('04), Kansas City ('04), Pittsburgh ('04-'08) and Toronto ('08-'17).

However, all good things must come to an end and that's the case for Bautista's decade long career as a Blue Jay, but now the 37-year-old has found a new home in the Major League Baseball.

Will be updated.The Atlanta Braves have agreed to a minor league contract with six-time All-Star Jose Bautista, a low-risk move to potentially bolster a lineup that has Ryan Flaherty at third base. Since 2012, he's appeared in just 12 games at third base (eight in 2017), meaning he will certainly need time to ease himself back into the position which he played for a large portion early in his career.

She was asked for her reaction during a SiriusXM Hits 1 radio interview, to which she responded: "We have a great friendship. Both Anna and Chris announced their separation on August 7, 2017 after 8 years of marriage.

Braves general manager Alex Anthopoulos, who was the GM in Toronto during much of Bautista's run with the Blue Jays, said he had talks with the slugger in the off-season that never gained momentum.

The 37-year-old Bautista earned $18 million under a one-year deal with Toronto last season and became a free agent. And they plan to use him as a third baseman. The big thing is he has only allowed one walk and one home run this season.

Jose Bautista has hit at least 22 homeruns in each of the last eight seasons including a career high 54 for the Blue Jays in 2010. He has four seasons with at least 100 RBIs.
