Braves Agree To Terms With Scott Proctor, Pick Up Options for Omar Infante and Alex Gonzalez

Frank Wren did not hesitate to get to work, making a few transactions less than 24 hours after the conclusion of the World Series. Wren and company have agreed to terms with right-handed reliever Scott Proctor, who spent most of the season recovering from surgery in the minors, and picked up Omar Infante's and Alex Gonzalez's options.

The Braves have a bunch of talented young right-handed relievers close to the Majors, but Wren seems to want an experienced arm in his bullpen. Stephen Marek, who pitched in triple-A this season, may be a better pitcher right now, but depth is always a good thing to have. Proctor's contract is said to be a one-year deal.

It was easy to predict the Braves picking up options for both Infante and Gonzalez, as Infante had an absolutely incredible season and market for shortstops is barren. Each player will receive $2.5 million next year. Infante should be moved back into a reserve role, filling in at multiple positions when injuries or poor play occur, with Gonzalez playing every day at shortstop.
