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.
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.
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.
Kennelly signed a minor league deal with the Atlanta Braves that includes an invitation to spring training.
Kennelly has bounced around the minors throughout his eight-year career, most recently recording a .217/.306/.252 in 290 at-bats between Double-A Mississippi and Triple-A Gwinnett. He'll likely continue to serve as organizational depth for the Braves in 2016.
Reid Brignac signed a minor league contract with the Atlanta Braves that includes an invitation to attend spring training.
Brignac played a bit in the Marlins last year, but was designated for assignment and became a free agent after hitting a lowly .077 in 17 plate appearances. Brignac doesn't bring much to the table in terms of hitting, but his ability to play almost every position could help him compete for a spot on the big-league roster during spring training.
