A look at the Braves' options after the season:
- Closer Billy Wagner has a $6.5MM club option with a $250K buyout. Wagner has looked nasty in the early going.
- Infielder Omar Infante has a $2.5MM club option with a $250K buyout. The Braves figure to exercise if Infante has a season like '08 and '09.
Troy Glaus, David Ross, Eric Hinske, and Takashi Saito are the Braves' eligible free agents; the group is guaranteed $7.55MM this year. The Braves players on multiyear deals aren't in line for significant raises in 2011, with Brian McCann and Nate McLouth totaling a $3MM bump.
First-time arbitration players include Jair Jurrjens, Yunel Escobar, Martin Prado, and Eric O'Flaherty. Jurrjens and Escobar are candidates to be locked up long-term, but Jurrjens is represented by Scott Boras. Regardless of extensions, Jurrjens and Escobar will receive big raises.
