#Braves are among teams talking to Chad Durbin. Had 3.10 ERA in team-high 76g for ATL, including 1.84 ERA in 62g after May 10— David O'Brien (@ajcbraves) November 27, 2012
Following a poor season with the Indians in 2011, the Braves were able to sign the right-hander to a one-year, $900k contract this past season, which paid off handsomely. If Atlanta wants to re-sign the veteran reliever, he is likely in line for a raise.
Durbin, 34, has bounced around the league quite a bit in his 13-year career -- pitching for six different organizations -- and has not always pitched well, but the veteran has found moderate success out of the bullpen in recent years. The right-hander owns a career 4.95 ERA and 6.2 K/9 rate, but has posted a much-improved 3.90 ERA and 7.5 K/9 rate since moving to the bullpen full-time five seasons ago.
