The Atlanta Braves added another reliever to their roster, signing Reynaldo López to a three-year deal. The $30 million agreement will see López earn $4 million in his first year and $11 million in each of the next two seasons. There is an $8 million option for 2027, along with a $4 million buyout.
López pitched for three teams over the course of 2023, namely the Chicago White Sox, Los Angeles Angels, and Cleveland Guardians. He had 83 strikeouts in 66 innings, which includes a career-best average of 11.3 Ks per nine innings.
Having led the MLB with 104 wins this past season, the Braves were eliminated in the NL Division Series for the second year in a row. The team has since been attempting to strengthen its roster in an attempt to break this rut.
