The Braves sign Josh Outman

The Braves announced today that they have signed reliever Josh Outman. The lefty gets a one-year major league deal.

Outman, 30, pitched for the Indians and Yankees last year, posting an ERA of 2.86 in 40 games. He’s a LOOGY, so he only pitched 26 innings. He walked 16 dudes in those innings, though, which — yuck. Two were intentional, presumably to get to lefties, but still.

In other news, the Braves once employed Bob Walk. And, if they wanted to, could go out and get Grant Balfour.
