The Braves non-tendered right-hander Peter Moylan last month, but David O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the two sides have agreed to a minor league contract which includes an invitation to spring training.
Moylan would make a $1 million prorated salary for time spent in the majors and could earn more with performance-based incentives.
Moylan was limited to just 13 appearances at the major-league level in 2011 after missing four months due to back surgery and a suffering a right rotator cuff injury which required season-ending surgery last September. Still, the Braves were encouraged enough by his progress to bring him back.
The 33-year-old Aussie has a 2.60 ERA over six seasons in the majors and has made 80 or more relief appearances in a season on three separate occasions.
