The Atlanta Braves kept up their busy offseason with another pair of moves on Friday night. The club signed infielder Luis Guillorme to a one-year deal and avoided arbitration with right-hander Huascar Ynoa.
#Braves signed INF Luis Guillorme to a 1-year, $1.1 million deal, and avoided arb with pitcher Huascar Ynoa by signing him to a 1-year, $825,000 deal. Guillorme, 29, is a lefty hitter who played 2B, SS, 3B in 2023 and has slashed .261/.344/.333 in 823 PAs over 6 seasons w/ NYM.— David O'Brien (@DOBrienATL) January 5, 2024
29-year-old Guillorme is slated to make $1.1M. He has spent the last six seasons with the New York Mets, with most of his playing time coming at second and third base.
Ynoa, though, was arbitration eligible and agreed to a one-year, $825,000 contract with the Braves. He missed all of 2023 after recovering from Tommy John but will likely be a huge asset to the pitching staff, assuming he returns to midseason form.
