Braves rumors: Atlanta talking to Chad Durbin

Drew Hallowell

The Braves are interested in bringing back the veteran reliever.

The Atlanta Braves are among teams in discussions with free-agent right-hander Chad Durbin, reports David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

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.
