Braves Re-Sign Boscan and Huber

Jean Boscan, a veteran of 13 Minor League seasons, was still vulnerable to a prank from precocious youngster Freddie Freeman.

It's not the kind of high profile signing that gets people excited, but the Braves added to their organizational depth today by retaining two of their own Minor League free agents, catcher JC Boscan and right handed reliever Jon Huber.

Boscan, who has played all but 2 of his 13 professional seasons in Atlanta's organization, has never appeared in the Major Leagues. He spent the majority of 2009 playing for AA Mississippi, appearing in 73 games and hitting .260 with a .656 OPS. He has spent nearly his entire career as a backup, attaining his career high in plate appearances, 401 as a 19 year old playing for Macon in 1999 and has only averaged 259 plate appearances a season for his career. But, he give a team value with suberb defense and excellent mentoring capabilities. He will enter next season as a 30 year old and will likely, once again, serve as a bakcup for one of the Braves' top affiliates.

Huber joined Gwinnett in June after beginning the season in the Independent League and was a solid, if unspectacular, reliever for the team, collecting a 4-0 record, 4.25 ERA, and 1.20 WHIP in 42.1 innings. He showed good control, striking out 8.9 batters per 9 innings while only walkng 1.5 per 9 innings. The 28 year old, who pitched 28 innings for the Seattle Mariners between 2006 and 2007, collecting a 2-1 record, 2.57 ERA and 1.17 WHIP, will look to earn a spot in Atlanta's bullpen in Spring Training, with a return trip to Gwinnett more likely.
