The Atlanta Braves head coach Brian Gerald Snitker  is suspended for 3 month, for that he refused to….

Joining a perennial pennant contender will work wonders for Jarred Kelenik, according to Atlanta Braves manager Brian Snitker.

“It will be good for me to get into our group,” said Snitker during a media conference at the Baseball Winter Meetings in Nashville. “I haven’t seen him play but I know how talented he is from people I’ve talked to about him. And he’s still just 24.”

Once considered one of baseball’s top prospects, Kelenik was the cornerstone of a five-man trade between the Braves and Seattle Mariners earlier this week. He’s expected to become Atlanta’s regular left-fielder, perhaps in a platoon with right-handed hitter Vaughn Grissom, who hit .330 at Triple-A Gwinnett.

Grissom, a former middle infielder, has volunteered to learn left field in the Puerto Rican Winter League, which opens its season in a few days.

“I love our team,” Snitker said of the club that led the majors with 104 wins and a record-tying 307 home runs, “but you can always make changes that will benefit the ballclub.”
