Braves' Reynaldo Lopez: Gets three years, $30M from AtlantaNovember 20, 2023 | 08:57 AM
Lopez signed a three-year, $30 million contract with an $8 million club option for 2027 with Atlanta on Monday. Atlanta had already re-signed Pierce Johnson and Joe Jimenez and traded for Aaron Bummer and they've now brought in Lopez to reinforce their bullpen. Lopez made a full-time move to relief in 2022 and has produced a 3.02 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 146:45 K:BB over 131.1 innings covering the last two seasons. Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Lopez will be stretched out during spring training to give Atlanta a rotation option, with the possibility that he could contribute both as a starter and reliever. Ultimately, he figures to settle into a setup role ahead of Raisel Iglesias with Atlanta.
