Braves signed RHP Peter Moylan to a minor league contract.

Moylan is working his way back from a second Tommy John surgery and could be ready for game action by late April/early May, according to Zach Links of The submariner has a career 2.80 ERA, but he's 36 and the track record for pitchers return from two Tommy John surgeries isn't good.

Peter Moylan (elbow) said Friday that he's doing "fantastic" in his recovery from Tommy John surgery.

"I’m doing fantastic, mate. Dropped 35 pounds." said Moylan. "My goal is to be 100 percent by end of spring. Ball is coming out great, though. Probably have to throw for some teams right around the start of spring to gauge interest, but there have already been some nibbles, which is encouraging." Moylan said he's still mulling whether to sign a deal soon or wait to sign until after the season gets underway. His career ERA is 2.80, but Moylan is 36 and returning from a second Tommy John surgery, so he's far from a safe bet.
