Braves Don’t Offer Contracts to Peter Moylan and Brooks Conrad

by @ 10:09 am. Filed under 2012 Braves

The Braves didn’t offer contracts to Peter Moylan and Brooks Conrad and in effect, turned them into free agents.  With Moylan, they would have had to sign him for around $2 million and it looks like they thought they can go lower then that and still compete with any other interested teams.  Moylan missed most of 2011 after he had shoulder surgery and it’s expected that he’ll start working out for teams so the Braves will get a chance to see how he’s progressing.

Conrad was used as a pinch hitter most of the time and while he wasn’t great, he had his moments.  He’s a switch hitter and he can play everywhere on the infield so he’ll probably get a look.  He’s a lot better against left handed pitching though so he’s more of a right handed pinch hitter then anything.

The Braves still have some work to do.  Michael Bourn, Martin Prado, Jair Jurrjens and Eric O’Flaherty are all arbitration eligible and we’ll see who gets deals before hand or who goes to the table.
