Smyly inks one-year, $11M deal with Braves

The Atlanta Braves today signed LHP Drew Smyly to a one-year contract worth $11 million.

Smyly, 31, spent last season with the San Francisco Giants and went 0-1 with a 3.42 ERA (10 ER/26.1 IP) in seven appearances, five starts. The southpaw struck out 42 hitters in his 26.1 innings, posting single-season career bests in strikeout rate (37.8%) and strikeouts per 9.0 innings (14.35), the latter of which led all major leaguers who made at least five starts. Smyly limited opposing hitters to a .198/.261/.297 slash line, all three of which were also career bests. Left-handed batters managed just three hits in 36 at-bats (.083) against him.
