“This is the ultimate full circle” “Just his presence in the pen is gonna be a boost”

Atlanta fans rejoiced as the Atlanta Braves announced the return of right-hander Jesse Chavez to the club for an astonishing fourth stint.

The reliever is a journeyman in the truest sense, having played for nine clubs in his 15-year long MLB career. He has returned to many of those clubs for a second or even a third stint.

It will mark Chavez’s second stint with Atlanta this season alone. He began the year with Atlanta, then moved to the Chicago Cubs before signing for the Los Angeles Angels.

The Angels are the only other club to have signed Chavez on three different occasions. His latest stint in the franchise, however, didn’t even last a month.

Chavez was released by the Halos yesterday, only 28 days after acquiring him and lefty Tucker Davidson in a trade for outgoing reliever Raisel Iglesias.

The Braves have jumped at the opportunity to garner more bullpen depth. They essentially acquired Iglesias in a straight-swap for Davidson. An Alex Anthopoulos masterclass? It seems that way.
