MLB: NLDS-Atlanta Braves at Philadelphia Phillies Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

A few days have gone by since the Atlanta Braves made a transaction, with the most recent one bringing starting pitcher Chris Sale from the Boston Red Sox. The 34-year-old will join a starting rotation composed of Max Fried, Spencer Strider, and Charlie Morton. The fifth rotation spot is undetermined, but we are still six weeks away from Spring Training. For now, let’s take a look at what we know about the Braves’ rotation following the acquisition of Sale.

MLB News:

The Cincinnati Reds signed right-hander Frankie Montas to a one-year deal worth $16M. The deal includes a mutual option for 2025.

The Chicago Cubs and pitcher Colten Brewer have reportedly agreed to a one-year deal. It is unclear if he will join on a major or minor league contract.

The opt-outs of Yoshinobu Yamamoto’s contract are dependent on elbow health.

The San Diego Padres finalized a five-year deal with reliever Yuki Mastui. He will make $28M with a couple of opt-out opportunities. The club is also reportedly nearing a deal with reliever Woo-Suck Go.
