Braves Sign All-Star Reliever Will Smith to Multi-Year Contract in Huge Move for Bullpen

12 Up

TheĀ Atlanta BravesĀ are being aggressive in the early going of MLB free agency and they just made a crucial move to help shore up their largely shaky bullpen.

On Thursday, the team announced it signed All-Star reliever Will Smith to a three-year contract. The left-hander has been among the best in the league the last two seasons and was a hot commodity at the trade deadline before the Giants let teams know they weren't going to be selling.

That's a handsome contract for Smith, who finished last season 6-0 with a 2.76 ERA, 1.03 WHIP, 96 strikeouts and 34 saves in 63 games (65.1 innings).
