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.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

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.

Braves' Acuna runaway pick for top NL rookie

In a year of big production from budding National League stars, Ronald Acuña Jr. wins NL Rookie of the Year, beating second-place finisher Juan Soto of the Nats and Dodgers starter Walker Buehler.
