The Atlanta Braves have come to a medium-term deal with a right-handed starter. Reynaldo Lopez has signed a three-year, $30 million contract with the team. He’ll make $4 million next year, and $11 million in 2025 and 2026.
It was reported by the Atlanta Braves’ official Twitter account on Monday.
Lopez made his MLB debut in July of 2016 with the Washington Nationals. He played there for one season before donning a White Sox jersey from 2017 until 2023. In 2023 alone he played for Chicago, Los Angeles and Cleveland.
In total last season, Lopez garnered a 3.27 ERA in 66 innings pitched and 68 games played. He gave up eight home runs and struck out 83 batters. He hasn’t put up starters’ innings since 2018 and 2019, but still may be a viable sixth starter.
