Good Addition: Braves have Re-Sign top talented catcher

According to the Triple-A Gwinnett Stripers’ transaction tracker, the Braves have re-signed catcher Chadwick Tromp to a minor league contract.

The Braves did not tender him last week. Infielder Luke Williams, who was also released by Atlanta last week, has returned on a minor league contract. Although he has not pitched in affiliated ball since 2017, right-hander Lucas Williams is mentioned on the transactions tracker.

MLBTR has verified that the Williams who was recently non-tendered is the one Atlanta re-signed this week.

The club also re-signed minor league free agent Grant Holmes to a minor league contract.

The right-handed pitcher Lucas Williams is listed on the transactions tracker, but he hasn’t pitched in affiliated ball since 2017, and MLBTR has confirmed that the Williams who was recently non-tendered is the one Atlanta re-signed this week.

The club also re-signed minor league free agent Grant Holmes to a minor league contract.

 

Tromp was not tendered by Atlanta last week, despite the fact that he was not yet arbitration eligible. By doing so, they made him a free agent without exposing him to waivers, allowing them to quickly re-sign him as a non-roster player this week.

The major league catching duo is Sean Murphy and Travis d’Arnaud, but they are now the only two backstops on the roster.

Tromp will provide them with some depth in Triple-A in case an injury arises. If he is re-added to the roster next year, he will have one more option year.

Williams, 27, is an infielder who Atlanta acquired from the Los Angeles Dodgers in June. He has 148 major league games under his belt dating back to 2021, with stops at the Phillies, Giants, and Marlins before landing with the Dodgers and Atlanta.

He has only hit.225/.281/.295 in the majors, but he has provided defensive versatility by playing all positions except catcher. In addition, he has stolen 17 bases in 23 attempts.

Atlanta already has a strong lineup, but they only have 11 hitters on the 40-man roster, leaving their bench and position player depth wide open. Williams can provide coverage all over the field without occupying a roster spot for the time being.
