Braves sign pitcher Nick Anderson

Free agency doesn’t really begin until the Braves make their first signing, and they did Friday night, inking right-handed pitcher Nick Anderson to a major-league pact.

Anderson has fantastic numbers for his career, posting a 2.89 ERA over 93 appearances. In 2020, he was filthy for the Rays during their run to the World Series. He had a 0.55 ERA during the shortened regular season.

Unfortunately, injuries have derailed Anderson’s career of late. He had Tommy John late last year and only pitched in six games this season. A couple of days ago, he was waived by the Rays, and now the Braves have signed him to a low-risk deal with a ton of upside. Nick Anderson could be a critical piece to an Atlanta relief core that may lose several considerable pieces this offseason.
