Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?
The Braves traded for Janish from the Cincinnati Reds mainly for his glove, to fill in while Andrelton Simmons is out with a broken hand. (Simmons is scheduled to get his cast off Friday and is likely two more weeks from returning.) Janish has made all the plays and more since he arrived.
“He’s been everything I’ve expected and beyond my expectations really,” said Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez, who said he got good reviews from Triple-A manager Dave Brundage, who’d seen him play for Louisville. “We got a lot of great recommendations about him, but you don’t appreciate the guy until you see him every day. Good baseball head too. He’s in the game. He’s sharp.”
