Brewers' Abraham Almonte: Invited to camp by Brewers
Almonte signed with the Brewers as a non-roster invitee in October.
The transaction occurred in the middle of the playoffs but was not publicized at the time. Almonte appeared in 64 games for an Atlanta team which eventually went on to win the World Series, though he was deemed surplus to requirements in August after the team revamped its outfield at the trade deadline. He hit a modest .216/.331/.399 with five homers, with his 97 wRC+ beating his career mark of 83. The 32-year-old us unlikely to see regular playing time next season but could see some time in a bench role.... See More ... See Less
Abraham Almonte: Elects free agency
Almonte cleared waivers and elected free agency Friday, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

Braves' Abraham Almonte: DFA'd by Atlanta

Braves' Abraham Almonte: Shifts into bench role
Almonte is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Brewers.
Almonte will sit for the third game in a row, and his path to a spot in the everyday lineup is now blocked after Atlanta picked up a pair of established corner outfielders in Adam Duvall and Jorge Soler ahead of Friday's trade deadline. Even in NL-only leagues, Almonte doesn't look to be worthy of a roster spot while all of Duvall, Soler, Joc Pederson and Guillermo Heredia are healthy and available.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Abraham Almonte: Swats fifth homer
Almonte went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's win over the Mets.
The veteran outfielder has been coming up big for Atlanta, going 8-for-24 (.333) over the last seven games with three of his five homers on the year. Almonte's .681 career OPS suggests he won't maintain that pace for long however, and the team could still bring in outfield reinforcements at the trade deadline Friday.... See More ... See Less

Braves' Abraham Almonte: On bench for Game 1 of twin bill
Almonte is out of the lineup for the first game of Monday's doubleheader with the Mets.
Orlando Arcia will get the nod in left field over Almonte, who went 3-for-12 while starting each of the past three games at the position. Almonte looks to have the playing-time edge over Arcia for the time being, but it wouldn't be surprising if Atlanta looked outside the organization for an upgrade in left field ahead of Friday's trade deadline....

Almonte went 3-for-5 with a home run and two additional RBI in Saturday's win over Philadelphia.
