ATLANTA (AP) - Relief pitcher Peter Moylan has agreed to a $1.15
million, one-year contract with the Atlanta Braves, the last of
their arbitration-eligible players.
Moylan made $410,000 last season while setting a franchise
record with 87 appearances and a major league mark for most games
without allowing a home run. The side-arming right-hander, a native
of Australia, went 6-2 with a 2.84 ERA as the main setup reliever
after missing most of the previous season recovering from elbow
Moylan is expected to fill much the same role in a bullpen that
now features Billy Wagner and Takashi Saito.
