Before the World Series even begins, the Braves decided to go ahead and get their offseason started in good fashion. Atlanta resigned reliever Pierce Johnson to a two-year deal, and a contract that could keep in Atlanta through 2026.
After acquiring Johnson at the trade deadline, Atlanta benefited from him being one of the best middle relievers in baseball. Johnson also proved he could be a late inning option in high leverage situations, and has a very successful postseason track record.
