The Atlanta Braves have fired first baseman Lucas Duda. Doubt had just signed a minor league contract with the Braves earlier this month (August 2) after being released by the Kansas City Royals on July 28.

Now, in less than a month, Duda has been run by two clubs, one from the American League and the other from the National. It was the second consecutive year that he went from the Royals to the Braves, having been traded to Atlanta for Kansas City during the 2018 season.

Last year that led to 22 plate appearances in 20 games with the tribe, but this year the Braves didn't even bother to call him after he scored 57-8 with a home run in 16 games in Triple-A Gwinnett. He hit .171 / .252 / .324 with four home runs in 119 plate appearances for Kansas City.

Duda, an initialist of 1.93 meters and 110 kilos weighs 33 years old and an experience of already 10 seasons in the MLB. His best years were with the New York Mets (2010-2017).

Lucas is eligible to play with any other team that signs it and can help as a power bat from the bench.
