Why The Braves Needed to Sign Sean Rodriguez

$11.5 million is what the Braves will give Sean Rodriguez over the next two years, and that seems fine even if he reverts to a utility infielder that faces mostly lefties. But there’s a few things Rodriguez did right last year, and if he does those things right again, he’ll be worth much more than the money he’s due.

In 2017, the Atlanta Braves will move into SunTrust Park, a new stadium in Cobb County, 10 miles northwest of downtown Atlanta.
