The Atlanta Braves reached deals with six of their seven arbitration eligible players on Friday including right-hander Mike Foltynewicz and shortstop Dansby Swanson. Each player agreed to one-year, non-guaranteed deals as was announced by the club Friday afternoon.

However, the team was unable to come to terms with reliever Shane Greene. The team and Greene exchanged salary figures on Friday and will now have his salary determined through arbitration.

MLB Trade Rumors projected Greene for a $6.5 million salary for the 2020 season. Atlanta acquired Greene at the trade deadline. He appeared in 27 games with the Braves posting a 4.01 ERA and a 3.94 FIP in 24 2/3 innings.

UPDATE - The Braves and Greene are reportedly $500,000 apart in their offered salaries.
