    Braves expected to Sign Ozuna to 4 year deal

    https://twitter.com/Joelsherman1/sta...922336260?s=20

    4 years with a 5th year (player?) option.

    Total value of the non option years in the "Mid $60Ms"

    Looks like an AAV of $16M-$18M

    The option is a club option with a $1M buyout... what a steal

    If the DH is here to stay after 2021, this is a steal. Great move by AA. Maybe he knows what he's doing.

    The four years are a little uncomfortable, but it’s hard to argue with that AAV.

    AA is probably banking on the DH for the final 3 years of the contract.

    I like the total value, even if I don't like 4 years. Not too risky.

    F'ings awesome. AA had us worried for awhile there. Even if he's an .850 OPS guy going forward, its a fine deal.

    While this is longer than anticipated, it's also cheaper per annum than anticipated. I know some eyebrows will raise at furnishing a thirty-year-old defensive non-factor with four years. However, I was expecting—were Ozuna to re-sign with Cobb County—something in the two-year, $50m range. It doesn't seem unreasonable to stretch that commitment out over four years, at an addition of $15m to the total outlay—especially if that flexibility was needed to add more pieces this offseason, or over the coming years.

    And on Ozuna's side, I think we see a confluence of (a) other competitive, spend-ready teams allocating resources elsewhere (pitching; players with more defensive versatility), (b) long-term earnings trumping AAV concerns, and (c) comfort returning to a team with which he really seemed to gel last year.

    Probably not something to count on, but we can cross our fingers that a full, normal spring training might help get Ozuna into better shape and improve to his defense to acceptably bad.

    Ozuna brings a lot of clutchness and laidership. I approve.

    Well done AA.

    4 years isnít ideal, but that AAV of $16M makes it palatable.

    Now AA needs to fill around the edges with the best complimentary pieces he can get for $5M-$10M.
