MLBTR is reporting that closer Mike Gonzalez has signed a one year contract with the Braves for $3.45 MM. Gonzalez appeared in 36 games last year with an 0-3 record. He struck out 44 in 33.7 innings, with 14 saves, and a 4.28 ERA. This will be his last season before arbitration.
I personally think that this is a good price for him. He should enter this season as our full time closer and has the potential to dominate when healthy. I think that if he pitching well and is healthy at mid-season we should try to resign him.
