BDD: Braves Ink Wagner

At Baseball Daily Digest, I analyze the Atlanta Braves’ signing of free agent Billy Wagner.

FanGraphs has not valued Wagner at $7 million since ‘06. This seems like a risky signing for the Braves. Not only are they signing an injury-prone one-inning pitcher to a $7 million deal that can potentially vest into a second year, but they have also offered arbitration to two other high-profile relievers.
