Todd Coffey will receive an $800,000 base salary if he makes the Braves.

Coffey could make an additional $200,000 through incentives. The 33-year-old hasn't pitched in the majors since 2012, but he had a 1.93 ERA over 37 1/3 innings with the Mariners' Triple-A affiliate last season and should have a decent chance to crack Atlanta's bullpen with a good showing this spring.

Braves signed RHP Todd Coffey to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Coffey had multiple teams interested in his services after posting a 1.93 ERA over 37 1/3 innings with the Mariners' Triple-A affiliate last season. The right-hander hasn't pitched in the majors since 2012. He couldn't have found a much better landing spot, as the Braves need pitching help and he has a legitimate shot at winning a bullpen job with a good spring.

Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish hears free agent Todd Coffey is drawing interest from 5-6 teams and could sign soon.

After missing the entire 2013 season due to Tommy John surgery, Coffey put up an impressive 1.93 ERA in 37 1/3 innings with the Mariners' Triple-A team last season. The 34-year-old may be hard-pressed to find a major league deal, but he could pitch his way into a team's bullpen this spring.
Jan 28 - 7:02 PM

Mariners released RHP Todd Coffey.

Coffey posted a 1.93 ERA with 34 strikeouts over 37 1/3 innings at Triple-A Tacoma, but the M's weren't going to promote him so instead they'll give him a chance to catch on elsewhere. The 33-year-old wouldn't be a bad middle relief option during the final month.

Mariners signed RHP Todd Coffey to a minor league contract.

Coffey missed all of last season following Tommy John surgery, but he impressed scouts during a throwing session last week. The 33-year-old could be a useful bullpen piece for Seattle.

According to Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish, free agent reliever Todd Coffey will have a showcase for interested teams on Wednesday in Arizona.

According to Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish, there are 9-10 teams showing interest in free agent Todd Coffey.

Cotillo's source says Coffey has been hitting 91-92 mph with his fastball in recent bullpen sessions and expects to be in the 93-94 mph range by next week. The veteran right-hander threw for more than a dozen teams in January and didn't get an attractive offer, but his market appears to be improving as Opening Day approaches. He underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery in July 2012 and sat out the 2013 season.

The 33-year-old is working to return from Tommy John surgery, the second time he's undergone the procedure in his career. Coffey last pitched for the Dodgers during the 2012 season.

Coffey has missed the last year and a half of action while recovering from Tommy John surgery. The 33-year-old last pitched for the Dodgers in 2012, posting a 4.66 ERA over 23 appearances. Coffey won't cost much more than a cheap cup of joe, as the best he could hope for is a minor league offer.
