The Braves have claimed former Mariner Mike Ford off waivers from Seattle.
The #Braves today claimed 1B Mike Ford off waivers from the Seattle Mariners and optioned him to Triple-A Gwinnett. To make room on the 40-man roster, the club designated INF Joseph Dunand for assignment.

Ford is probably best known for his time with the Yankees, but he has spent time with Washington and San Fransisco as well. The Braves needed some first base depth in Gwinnett, so this move makes sense. Ford’s best season came as a rookie in 2019, clubbing 12 home runs and posting a .909 OPS over 50 games. He hasn’t shown much since, so I doubt he’s in Atlanta anytime soon.
