Your 2010 Braves bullpen is brought to you by: the 2009 Boston Red Sox.

CBS Sports is reporting that the Braves are close to signing reliever Takashi Saito to a one year deal worth $3 million.

We’ll have more analysis on this later. In the meantime, we can say that this all but ensures that Rafael Soriano and Mike Gonzalez are done with Atlanta.

The Yankees announced on Wednesday that the club traded outfielder Jabari Blash to the Angels in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

Blash, 28, was acquired by the Yankees from the Padres back in December in the Chase Headley trade. In trading Blash to the Angels, the Yankees were able to free up a spot on the 40-man roster for Brandon Drury, the infielder they acquired as part of a three-team trade with the Diamondbacks and Rays on Tuesday.

Over parts of two seasons in the majors, Blash has hit an underwhelming .200/.323/.336 in 279 plate appearances. He will try to play his way into a bench role for the Angels this spring.
