With the non-tender deadline tonight the Braves have avoided arbitration with reliever Jonny Venters and utility infielder Ramiro Pena by signing them to one-year deals.

Venters was once a dominant setup man for closer Craig Kimbrel, but wore down under extremely heavy usage and missed all of this year following Tommy John elbow surgery. He’ll get $1.625 million for 2014, which is exactly what Venters made in 2013.

Pena signed with the Braves last offseason after coming up with the Yankees and missed the final three months following shoulder surgery. He’s a career .244 hitter with a .606 OPS and is strictly a bench player.
