SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Right-handed reliever Darren O'Day is guaranteed $2.75 million as part of the one-year contract he reached to return to the Atlanta Braves.
O'Day's deal, announced Friday, includes a $2.25 million salary for 2020. The NL East champions have a $3.5 million option for 2021 with a $500,000 buyout.
The 37-year-old O'Day appeared in just eight games for the Braves last season due to a right forearm strain. He allowed one earned run in 5 1/3 innings in the regular season, then pitched two scoreless innings in the playoffs.
The sidearmer has pitched in 12 big league seasons and was an All-Star with Baltimore in 2015. He also missed much of the 2018 season because of injuries.
