Braves signed LHP John Danks to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.
Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports says the lefty will receive $1.5 million if he makes the team. Danks sat out most of the 2016 season after being released by the White Sox in May following a 7.25 ERA across four starts. He has posted a 4.92 ERA in 97 starts dating back to the beginning of 2012, as he simply hasn't been the same pitcher since his shoulder issues cropped up. There doesn't appear to be room for him in the Braves' rotation, but he might stick around as a long reliever. Mon, Dec 12, 2016 07:53:00 PM
