Done deal: Atlanta sign a non-guaranteed deal to minor league….

Atlanta Braves sign veteran minor league 3B Phillip Evans to non-guaranteed deal.

The Atlanta Braves have signed minor leaguer free agent Phillip Evans to a non-guaranteed, minor league deal. He will report to AAA Gwinnett.

Evans, 31, was a 15th round pick by the New York Mets in the 2011 MLB Draft out of high school. He made his MLB debut in 2017, playing in 34 games across two seasons with a .241 batting average before being granted free agency after the 2018 season.

Signing with the Cubs and then Pirates, he didn’t make it back to the majors until Pittsburgh dealt with injuries in 2020 and called him up for 11 games, but he made the most of it. Playing mostly third base but also filling in at first, left, and right field, Evans batted .359/.444/.487 across his short 2020 sample, earning him extended run in the 2021 season.
