Infielder Adeiny Hechavarria and the Atlanta Braves are in agreement on a one-year, $1 million contract, a source familiar with the deal tells ESPN. Good utility option who played second, short and third while with the Braves last season.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

MLB.com reports that Josh Donaldson has agreed to a four-year deal with the Twins, giving the Twins -- who set the single-season record with 307 home runs in 2019 -- another slugger while improving their defense at third base as well. The Twins had a record five players hit 30-plus home runs and now add Donaldson, who hit 37. It's a huge loss for the Braves as they lose their cleanup hitter in a lineup that now looks very thin once you get past Ronald Acuna Jr., Ozzie Albies and Freddie Freeman.

Laura Cusick, whose husband Rick suffered serious injuries at a 2016 Atl/StL game, said she's happy about MLB's extended netting news, but the absence of a precise mandate "indicates that they really do not take this issue seriously and are only acting to improve their own optics." She added that MLB "should publish the data they have collected that shows where the most dangerous seats in the stadium are located and let the fans make an informed choice about their seat selection."
