Braves' Blaine Boyer: Joins Braves on minor league deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyer agreed to a minor league contract with the Braves on Tuesday that includes an invite to spring training, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

The 35-year-old Boyer is coming off a season in which he allowed 80 hits with a mere 26 strikeouts in 66 innings for Milwaukee, but Bowman suggests Boyer stands "a good chance" at an Opening Day roster spot. If Boyer is indeed in the Braves' bullpen at the start of the season, he will likely pitch primarily in mop-up duty.

Braves' Ian Krol: Avoids arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Krol agreed to a one-year, $900,000 deal with the Braves on Friday, avoiding arbitration, MLB.com's Mark Bowman reports.

He pitched quite well out of the bullpen last year, posting a 3.18 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 56:13 K:BB in 51 innings. However, he is not particularly close to competing for saves, and should see most of his opportunities in middle relief in 2017.

Braves' Arodys Vizcaino: Avoids arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vizcaino (shoulder) agreed to a one-year, $1.55 million with the Braves on Friday, avoiding arbitration, MLB.com's Mark Bowman reports.

He is resting his ailing shoulder this winter, but is expected to be ready for spring training. Vizcaino is expected to enter the year as a setup man, and could be in the mix for saves if Jim Johnson falters in the ninth inning.

Braves' Micah Johnson: Traded to Braves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson was traded to the Braves on Friday for cash or a player to be named later.

Johnson hasn't shown much to indicate that he can stick in the big leagues, but he should at least get a shot at a roster spot during spring training with the Braves. Johnson spent most of 2016 with the Dodgers' Triple-A affiliate in Oklahoma City, where he put up a .677 OPS as a 25-year-old and was 26-for-37 on stolen bases. He has a .226/.299/.264 in 119 career major league plate appearances.

Braves' Thomas Burrows: Traded to Atlanta in four-player deal
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Burrows was shipped Wednesday to the Braves along with prospect Luiz Gohara in exchange for outfielder Mallex Smith and reliever Shae Simmons, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

Burrows is the lesser of the two prospects heading back to the Braves, but since the 22-year-old is being developed as a reliever, he may actually have an easier path to the big leagues than the 20-year-old Gohara. The right-hander made 20 appearances for High-A Everett upon being drafted last summer and found immediate success, supplying a 2.55 ERA and 37 strikeouts in 24.2 innings.
