The Atlanta Braves are moving right on after Josh Donaldson’s departure.
Ozuna, perhaps the top remaining bat on the market, hit .241 with 29 homers and 89 RBIs in 130 games for the St. Louis Cardinals last season. He had been extended a $17.8 million qualifying offer by the Cardinals, who will now receive draft pick compensation for his exit.
The signing marks a victory for the Braves, who went 97-65 last season, as they had been after Ozuna along with other free agent power hitters.
