FanGraphs posts its Braves team preview. This is a good representation of the Braves' upcoming season and makes a lot of good points, which is rare for team previews because so many miss the little details or aren't accurate.â†µ
John Sickels at Minor League Ball continued his excellent career profile series with a look at Chipper Jones. It's always fun to look back at the career we were fortunate enough to witness on a daily basis.â†µ
Phillies outfielder Domonic Brown broke his hamate bone and will be out 3-6 weeks. Brown began his Spring Training with a 0-15 skid, so his spring couldn't get much worse. Crashburn Alley has a good post on the injury, including timetables for his return and for his power. Even after Brown returns, his power likely won't return to normal for a long time.â†µ
Chase Utley received a cortisone shot in his knee, and he has yet to play in a game this spring. It looks like the tendinitis is worse than expected. Not a good start to spring camp for the Phillies.â†µ
The Mets would like Jose Reyes to work on his OBP before they offer an extension. Not bad thinking for the new front office.
