Atlanta, Ga-The Atlanta Braves have re-signed seven players that were all eligible for salary arbitration to one year contracts.
Among them, pitchers Mike Foltynewicz, Sam Freeman, Kevin Gausman, Arodys Vizcaino, and Dan Winkler. Also, Charlie Culberson and Adam Duvall sign deals to avoid arbitration.
Foltynewicz took the next step in becoming a cornerstone to the Braves rotation and seemed to only get better as the year went on.
For Gausman, he came over mid-season and fit right in as he brought experience to the rotation and played a pivotal role down the stretch.
Vizcaino started the year as the Braves closer but was battling injuries for a good portion of the season. He did return late and got the job done out of the pen.
Culberson has shown his worth by being able to play infield and outfield and was a reliable bat off the bench.
All of the contracts are non-guaranteed as they will need to make the team in spring training to earn the contract.
