Exciting news as Game 3 of the World Series gets underway: JJ Cooper of Baseball America reports that the Braves have signed pitcher Chris Volstad to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Volstad, 29, spent almost the entire season with the Pirates’ Triple-A affiliate in Indianapolis. There, he compiled a 3.18 ERA with a 97/43 K/BB ratio in 155 2/3 innings. Volstad hasn’t pitched regularly in the major leagues since 2012 when he was with the Cubs.
