Braves make Hinske an offer

Braves general manager Frank Wren revealed Friday that he has made a contract offer to free agent Eric Hinske.  But it’s not believed to be one of the two-year offers that Hinske is currently seeking. 

The Braves appear to be comfortable bringing Hinske back with a one-year deal worth approximately $1.5 million.  The veteran utility player hit .256 with 11 homers in 281 at-bats this past season for the Braves.  

Hinske has told some of his Braves teammates that he would likely return to Atlanta if he is provided a two-year contract.  But it seems doubtful that Wren would be willing to offer the extra guaranteed season.

Wren also said that he hasn’t decided whether he’ll tender a contract to Matt Diaz, who stands as the most likely of the club’s arbitration-eligible players to be non-tendered.

The braves BETTER sign Matt Diaz!

Why sigh Matt Diaz? Prado is going to be playing left and Heyward will be in right so there isn’t going to be room for Diaz. He will get over 2 mil to be a a pinch hitter? Diaz will be gone! I hope they get Hinske back though. He is a great clubhouse guy and brings a winner attitude that the Braves need. I hope they find a place for McLouth so maybe they can land Jacoby Ellsbury from boston and put 50+ stolen bases at the top pf the lineup for Prado Heyward Jones Uggla and McCann!
