11-Year Veteran Infielder Elects Free Agency

Ehire Adrianza, a 34-year-old infielder known for his multi-positional versatility, has chosen to enter free agency.

This decision comes after he cleared waivers and was outrighted off the Atlanta Braves' 40-man roster.

Adrianza had faced injuries to his elbow and shoulder during a substantial part of the 2023 season, which likely influenced his decision to explore new opportunities in the open market.

Adrianza has had a lengthy career spanning 11 Major League seasons, during which he has played for various teams, including the Minnesota Twins, San Francisco Giants, Washington Nationals, and Atlanta Braves.

During his career, the 34-year-old holds a .238/.308/.352 triple-slash line, with 21 home runs, 149 RBIs, 19 stolen bases, and 183 runs scored across 616 games played.

Despite his struggles at the plate during his limited appearances with the Braves in the 2023 season, his versatility as a utility player makes him an attractive option for some teams.

While it remains to be seen where Adrianza will land in free agency, he has the potential to sign a minor-league deal or possibly rejoin the Braves in a new capacity.

His experience and ability to play multiple positions may still make him a valuable asset for a team willing to give him an opportunity. Photo Credit:  Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports
