Bradford Doolittle ESPN Staff Writer 

Talking about the transition of even more of the Braves' young arms to the big-league level, manager Brian Snitker spoke about how things have changed since his days as a Triple-A manager, saying, "(It used to be that) you never know how a player is going to perform when they see that third deck. Now, these kids come up and it doesn't faze them one bit. They think they are right where they are supposed to be."

Donaldson hoping for long-term home with Braves

The Braves were Josh Donaldson's favorite team as a child. Now he hopes they're the team he finishes his career with, despite signing just a one-year contract with the team as a free agent.

Way-too-early 2019-20 MLB free-agent rankings

While this winter's crop searches for new homes, we look ahead to the big decisions that loom for some of the game's top stars -- Nolan Arenado, Chris Sale, Paul Goldschmidt and Gerrit Cole among them.

I love the Braves getting Josh Donaldson on a one-year, low-risk deal. From 2015 to 2017, he ranked third among position players in WAR behind only Mike Trout and Mookie Betts. That doesn't mean he'll return to that level at age 33 and after the calf injury that wiped out most of his 2018 season, but he should look nice in the cleanup spot after Freddie Freeman. It probably takes them out of the Manny Machado and Bryce Harper lotteries as well -- not that the usually conservative Braves were going after either of those two anyway.

The top offseason priority for all 30 MLB teams

Your favorite team probably isn't going to get Bryce Harper or Manny Machado. But another move -- maybe for a top pitcher -- could make all the difference this winter.
