Braves Re-Sign Scott Proctor

The Braves have re-signed veteran right-hander Scott Proctor to a minor league contract, tweets David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Proctor has been placed the roster with the team's Triple-A affiliate in Gwinnett.

Proctor, 33, was released by the Braves a week ago after signing a one-year deal worth $750K last November. Proctor appeared in four games for the Braves last season, but had an abysmal Spring Training in which he allowed 12 hits and walked nine men through just 10 2/3 innings of work. He did manage 12 strikeouts as well, though that's little consolation when you allow 14 runs.

The Braves paid Proctor just over 25% of the $750K he was guaranteed upon his release when he lost his bullpen spot to Cristhian Martinez. For his career, Proctor owns a 4.46 ERA through 302 2/3 innings. He's posted a respectable 7.8 K/9, but allowed far too many baserunners with a 4.0 BB/9 and 9.5 H/9. Opponents have a career .247/.326/.422 line against him and his platoon split is almost non-existent.
