(Atlanta) Left-handers Max Fried and A. J. Minter agreed to one-year deals with the Atlanta Braves on Thursday, avoiding arbitration.

Starting pitcher Fried will pocket 15 million, reliever Minter 6.22 million.

Last season, Fried was 8-1 with a 2.55 ERA.

He missed nearly three months with a strained left forearm. At the end of the season, he also had to be absent due to a blister.

Fried turns 30 on January 18. In seven seasons with Atlanta, he has a 62-26 record and a 3.03 ERA.

The 30-year-old Minter has 10 saves in 2023. He has posted a 3.76 ERA in 70 games.
