Atlanta Braves 2014 World Series odds Ervin Santana

LAS VEGAS, NV (The Spread) – Following a plethora of injuries to their starting rotation, the Atlanta Braves made a much-needed move on Wednesday to add a veteran arm.

The Braves signed right-handed pitcher Ervin Santana to a one-year, $14.1 million contract, which matched the qualifying offer that he received from the Royals. Atlanta will give up its first-round pick in order to sign Santana but the move was a bit of a necessity following the injuries to starters Kris Medlen (forearm) and Brandon Beachy (elbow).

"In light of what has happened over the past few days with our pitching staff, we felt it was incumbent on us to do everything we could to strengthen our starting pitching," Braves general manager Frank Wren told reporters before a game against Washington.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv the Braves’ odds to win the 2014 World Series are now 18/1 after they were sitting at 20/1 last week. They’re also +130 to win the National League East Division and 17/2 to win the NL pennant this year after they were 9/1 last week.

The Nationals remain favored to win the NL East despite not qualifying for the postseason a year ago. Following the Braves at +130, the Phillies are +750 to win the division while the Mets are +1600 and the Marlins have the longest odds at +2500.
