 ATLANTA (AP) -The Braves avoided arbitration with three players, agreeing to one-year contracts Thursday with pitchers Mike Gonzalez and Tyler Yates and infielder Omar Infante.
Gonzalez reached a deal for $2,362,500, basically the same salary he played for last season ($2.35 million). The left-hander pitched in only 18 games in 2007, going 2-0 with two saves and a 1.59 ERA before season-ending elbow surgery. He isn't expected to return until around the All-Star break.
Infante, acquired from the Chicago Cubs during the winter meetings to bolster Atlanta's infield depth, will play for $1.4 million this season, a raise of $100,000.
Yates got $800,000 after making $412,500 last season for the Braves. He was 2-3 with a 5.18 ERA and two saves.
Three other Braves filed for arbitration: first baseman Mark Teixeira, reliever Rafael Soriano and outfielder Matt Diaz.
