ATLANTA — The Atlanta Braves have added another potential contender for playing time in left field by signing Kevin Pillar to a minor-league contract. Pillar tweeted that he's "beyond excited" to join th Braves. He would reportedly make $3 million if he cracks the big league roster. The 34-year-old Pillar played in just four big league games for the Dodgers last season before fracturing his shoulder. Pillar played for the New York Mets in 2021, when he was involved in a frightening incident against the Braves. A fastball from Jacob Webb struck Pillar in the face, leaving him with multiple fractures.
