Braves sign Kirby Yates to 2-yr., $8.25 million deal

On Monday, the Braves signed RHP Kirby Yates to a two-year contract worth $8.25 million guaranteed. Yates will make $1 million next season, before earning $6 million in 2023. The deal also includes a $5.75 million club option for 2024 that includes a $1.25 million buyout. Yates also agreed to donate 1% of his earnings in each year of his deal to the Atlanta Braves Foundation.

Yates, 34, spent last season with Toronto, but did not pitch for the Blue Jays after undergoing Tommy John surgery for his right elbow on March 24. He also had the same operation in 2006.
