The Braves are continuing to load up their bullpen with quality arms. Just 5 days after signing Will Smith, they sign RHP Chris Martin to a two year, 14 million dollar deal, with an AAV of seven million dollars. Martin was elite at striking out batters while limiting walks in 2019, putting up a 27.8 K-BB% and having a league-best 2.3 BB%. Martin put up one of his best seasons in 2019, putting up career bests in ERA, FIP, K%, and BB%. If he continues to improve, this could be a major steal for the Braves.
