Braves' Jim Johnson: Signs with Braves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Atlanta Braves signed Jim Johnson to a one-year contract Monday.

Johnson opened last season as the Braves' top setup man and eventually took over closing duties from Jason Grilli following the latter's season-ending Achilles injury. However, Johnson's stint as a closer lasted less than a month before he was shipped to the Dodgers at the trade deadline. In the end, he made 72 appearances between the two organizations, posting 10 saves to go with a 2-6 record, 4.45 ERA, 1.455 WHIP, and 50:20 K:BB in 66.2 innings. Expect Johnson to challenge for the Braves' setup role yet again.

Braves' Hector Olivera: Finished with winter ball
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hector Olivera is done playing in winter leagues for the duration of the offseason, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Olivera was released by his winter ball club in Puerto Rico after returning to the team a day later than expected following a trip to Miami to visit his gravely ill sister. He played in 18 games for Caguas, hitting .275 (19-for-69) with a .645 OPS to conclude a 2015 season that featured 77 games played for eight different teams in eight different leagues over a span of seven months. The Atlanta Braves are moving Olivera to left field to begin 2016, but he could still see some time at third base if needed. During his time in Puerto Rico, Olivera worked with Braves hitting coach Kevin Seitzer, who was pleased with the progress of the 30-year-old during their time working together. Most likely, Olivera will serve as the Braves' starter in left field in 2016 after a hamstring injury kept him from contributing with the Dodgers prior to his midseason trade to Atlanta.

Braves' Bud Norris: One-year deal with Braves
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Norris agreed to a one-year, $2.5 million contract with the Braves on Wednesday.

The 30-year-old received a major-league contract but will take a steep pay cut after making $8.8 million last season. Norris was clobbered to the tune of a 7.06 ERA in 18 appearances (11 starts) for the Orioles last season before being released, and then pitched exclusively out of the bullpen after signing with the Padres in August. It's expected Norris will return to the rotation for the rebuilding Braves.

Braves' Matt Tuiasosopo: Signs a minor league contract with Braves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matt Tuiasosopo signed a minor league contract with the Atlanta Braves that includes an invitation to attend spring training.

Tuiasosopo spent 2015 in the White Sox organization with Triple-A Charlotte. He showed a good ability to play corner infield and outfield positions, and put up a solid .791 OPS with 18 homers and 52 RBI, although he did strike out a whopping 29.1% percent of the time. The Braves have a lot of options at the corner infield and outfield spots, so it'll be tough for Tuiasosopo to be more than organizational depth.

Braves' Chase d'Arnaud: Signs a minor league contract with Braves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chase d'Arnaud signed a minor league contract with the Atlanta Braves that includes an invitation to attend spring training.

d'Arnaud spent last year in the Phillies organization, playing with Triple-A Lehigh Valley prior to a September call-up. He was a decent hitter, batting .268 with five home runs and 35 RBI, but was outrighted off the Phillies' 40-man roster after the season was over. The 28-year-old will look to find a spot as a utility infielder during spring training.
