Atlanta Braves, Martin Prado Agree To One-Year Deal

While Martin Prado's future in Atlanta remains uncertain, the Atlanta Braves and the 28-year-old reached an agreement on a one-year deal to avoid salary arbitration, the club announced via Twitter.

Despite coming off a career worst season, it didn't have much bearing on Prado's 2012 salary. According to David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the one-year deal is worth between $4.5-$5 million, which is right about what Prado earned in 2011.

Prado, 28, hit .260/.302/.385 in 590 plate appearances with 13 homers last season with the Braves. Prado played second base for the club, before moving to left field after the acquisition of Dan Uggla.

After locking up Prado for 2012, the Braves have three remaining arbitration-eligible players.

  • Twitter / @Braves: Braves agreed to terms today with outfielder Martin Prado on a one-year contract for the upcoming 2012 season avoiding arbitration.
  • Twitter / @AJCBraves: #Braves and Martin Prado have avoided arbitration, reaching 1-year agreement today for between $4.5-$5 million.
