Mike Gonzalez, acquired by the Braves last week in the Adam LaRoche trade, will join The Braves Show's premium subscribers in the chatroom Thursday night at 8:00 pm ET.
The chat will begin at 7:00 pm ET, and then Gonzalez will join in on the discussion at 8:00 pm ET.
Gonzalez was 24-for-24 in save opportunities last season for the Pirates. He's expected to get some save chances for the Braves, but he'll serve as the primary setup man for closer Bob Wickman.
