UPDATE II: It’s sounding like it could be a big extension. Multiple years, nine figures. Pretty bold for the Braves.

UPDATE: Jon Heyman reports that a deal has been reached. Terms not yet disclosed.

1:16 PM: Jason Heyward. Freddie Freeman. Phillip Tattaglia. Moe Greene. Stracci. Cuneo. Today the Braves settled all family business:

In the Heyward post I mentioned how it was odd that the Braves reached deals with him given their “file and trial” policy. Since then the team explained that their no-negotiation stance doesn’t apply to mutli-year deals, just one-year deals to avoid arbitration. Which, whatever, if that makes them happy OK, but most negotiations don’t work so cleanly.
