ATLANTA (AP) — “It feels right ,” he said, over and over again.Looking to improve on their first division title in five years, the Atlanta Braves agreed to one-year contracts with McCann and former AL MVP Josh Donaldson — a pair of low-risk moves that give the team a chance to make another postseason run while not hindering the long-term development of all those talented young players.Donaldson agreed to a $23 million deal, the Braves confirmed Monday night. The salary matches what the third baseman made during a forgettable 2018 season.McCann’s $2 million contract reunites the team with a catcher who was a seven-time All-Star from 2005-13. A native of suburban Atlanta, he was eager for a chance to return home with his wife and two children.“This is as special a day for me as any I’ve had in my career,” McCann said during a hastily called news conference at SunTrust Park. “To put this uniform back on, with the love I have for this organization, the love I have for everybody from top to bottom, people I’ve known since I was 18 years old, that’s why I’m here.”While McCann’s signing is sure to be popular with the fan base, the acquisition of Donaldson figures to be far more significant to the team’s fortunes in 2019.The Braves are counting on a return to form from the three-time All-Star, who turns 32 next month. It was only three years ago that he captured the MVP award in his first season with Toronto Youth Yannick Ngakoue Jersey , hitting 41 homers and leading the AL with 123 RBIs. While he followed up with two more 30-plus-homer seasons, a hip injury in 2016 and a strained right calf in 2017 cut into his production.This past season, Donaldson was limited to 52 games by shoulder inflammation and calf issues, hitting .246 with eight homers and 23 RBIs. He was dealt to Cleveland by the Blue Jays on Aug. 31.The short-term deal with the Braves gives Donaldson a chance to show he’s healthy and back to form, potentially setting up a huge payday in the next free-agent market.For Atlanta, it provides another much-needed slugger in the middle of the order to go with Freddie Freeman, especially since it’s not known if the team will make a serious run at bringing back free-agent outfielder Nick Markakis.General manager Alex Anthopoulos attended the news conference for McCann but did not comment on the signing of Donaldson.It was left to McCann to inadvertently mention the Braves’ other acquisition, which the team did not officially announce until hours later.“I don’t know if I was supposed to say that,” McCann said, sounding a bit embarrassed. “I just read it on Twitter.”“I don’t even know who that is,” Anthopoulos quipped.Actually, Donaldson and the GM have a relationship that goes back to their days in Toronto. Anthopoulos served in the same post for the Blue Jays until 2015 , working out the blockbuster trade brought Donaldson from Oakland.A news conference with Donaldson was scheduled for Tuesday. The Braves designated left-handers Adam McCreery and Ricardo Sanchez for assignment to make room for their new acquisitions on the 40-man roster.Atlanta’s signing of Donaldson raises questions about the future of 24-year-old Johan Camargo, who had a breakout season at third base. He hit .272 with 19 homers and 76 RBIs before going 0 for 15 in a Division Series loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers.Camargo, who has also played shortstop, second base and even one game in left field during his brief big league career, could upgrade Atlanta bench as a super sub — a big priority after the Braves went with a playoff roster that included journeymen Ryan Flaherty and Lane Adams. Or, if there’s an opening in the outfield, Camargo could get a shot to play alongside NL Rookie of the Year Ronald Acuna Jr. and Gold Glover Ender Inciarte.McCann, who turns 35 in February, left the Braves to sign an $85 million, five-year contract with the New York Yankees. After the emergence of Gary Sanchez, McCann was traded to Houston and helped the Astros win their first World Series title in 2017.But McCann dipped badly this year, hitting a career-low .212 with seven homers and 23 RBIs in 63 games. He missed about two months because of arthroscopic surgery on his right knee in July.While the Braves signed McCann mainly for his leadership abilities and the chance to work with a young starting staff Authentic Patrick Mahomes Jersey , Anthopoulos said he’s hopeful that the catcher will bounce back offensively “now that he’s got his knee fixed. The reports on him are very strong. We think is upside is great, beyond everything else he brings.”McCann will share playing time with Tyler Flowers in what the Braves hope will be another effective duo behind the plate, similar to what they had the last two seasons with Flowers and Kurt Suzuki.Suzuki recently signed a two-year deal with NL East rival Washington.McCann thanked Charlie Culberson for agreeing to give up No. 16, which the utility player wore in 2018 for the Braves.“I have to get him something nice,” McCann said. “That number means a lot to me. That’s the number I wore my first nine years. It’s special.” HOUSTON (AP) — With his team down one run going into the eighth inning, Houston manager AJ Hinch went to closer Roberto Osuna in hopes of keeping it that way.Things only got worse for the Astros in Game 3 of the AL Championship Series. Osuna gave up a grand slam to Jackie Bradley Jr. after hitting consecutive pinch-hitters with two-strike pitches, and the Boston Red Sox won 8-2 on Tuesday to take a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series.“It’s a 3-2 ballgame until all hell broke loose in the eighth inning,” Hinch said. “A couple of hit by pitches and a huge swing by Bradley and there’s the game.”Hinch treats one-run deficits like a tie game in the postseason, figuring his team still has a good chance to win.“Trying to keep it at a one-run game with a really effective closer against the middle part of their order,” he said. “We get out of that 3-2, we’ve got plenty of outs left, and you never know what can happen.”In his first ALCS appearance for the Astros , Osuna came on with Houston trailing 3-2 and retired J.D. Martinez on a deep fly to start the eighth before an infield single by Xander Bogaerts.After a fielder’s choice grounder for the second out, Rafael Devers singled. Pinch-hitter Brock Holt was hit on the foot to load the bases before Mitch Moreland got plunked as well, forcing in a run.“Just a weird inning,” Osuna said. “I got Martinez on the first pitch and then I got after Bogaerts with two strikes early in the count, and then I don’t know what happened.”Bradley’s slam to right field broke it open, giving Boston an 8-2 cushion.“No margin for error,” Hinch said. “It’s really a matter of he didn’t finish at-bats as well as he normally does, whether it’s going to pitches or executing the pitch. Execution was a little bit of a problem at the end of at-bats. And he lost a lot of those at-bats at a huge time in the game.”It was another postseason meltdown for a hard-throwing Astros closer, similar to Ken Giles last October. Giles was traded to Toronto in July as part of the deal that brought Osuna to the Astros.In Game 4 of the World Series last year, Giles came into a 1-1 tie in the ninth inning and was charged with three runs without getting an out in a loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers. It was the sixth time in seven postseason appearances that he gave up a run.Osuna made two scoreless appearances for the Astros in the AL Division Series against Cleveland, getting the save in Game 2 after pitching the final 1 1/3 innings.The Astros will likely need more of that if the defending World Series champions are going to get a chance to win it all again this season.“You don’t want to do this to your team, especially in a situation like that Authentic Derwin James Jersey ,” Osuna said. “But I’m ready to bounce back tomorrow.”His teammates didn’t seem worried about one bad outing by Osuna.“He’s a pretty confident guy and he’s going to turn the page quick,” said Jose Altuve, who had two hits and scored both Houston runs.In his 23 regular-season games with the Astros after being acquired, Osuna was 2-2 with 12 saves and a 1.99 ERA. He had 19 strikeouts and three walks.“This guy, he’s been here before and he’s one of the best young pitchers in the game,” catcher Brian McCann said. “We were one pitch away at two outs, and a couple of pitches got away and hit them. … He’s got the temperament (for) closers that you strive to be. He’s going to be ready to go tomorrow.”Canadian prosecutors last month dropped a domestic assault charge against Osuna, who agreed to stay away from the alleged victim for one year and continue counseling.Osuna was still with the Blue Jays in May when he was suspended without pay for 75 games for violating Major League Baseball’s domestic violence policy.“We have a very close-knit group in there and he’s absorbed some of that love and affection and he’ll get that tonight. He’ll be ready to go,” Hinch said.
