Hinske’s coming back
Solid part-timer, excellent pinch hitter and a good character guy. Plus, he wants to be here.
The outfielder/first baseman agreed to a one-year deal with a second-year option to stay with the Braves, turning down an offer from the Milwaukee Brewers in his home state, said a person familiar with negotiations. Contract figures weren’t immediately known, but the deal includes plenty of incentives for number of plate appearances.
