The Braves signed righty Juan Jaime to a minor league deal, MLBTR has learned. The deal covers the rest of 2011 as well as 2012.
Jaime, 24, was released by the Diamondbacks yesterday after being designated for assignment to create a roster spot for Lyle Overbay. He had Tommy John surgery in April of last year, prior to which Baseball America ranked him 17th among Nationals prospects. At that time BA saw Jaime as a future power arm out of the bullpen. With a mid-90s fastball, his ceiling is high.
