Braves sign former Angels reliever Kohn
ATLANTA (AP) The Atlanta Braves have agreed to terms with right-hander Michael Kohn on a one-year deal.
The minor league contract includes an invitation to the Braves' spring training.
The 28-year-old Kohn was 2-1 with a 3.04 ERA in 25 relief appearances with the Los Angeles Angels last season. He missed the 2012 season following Tommy John surgery. He is 5-6 with five saves in four seasons with the Angels. He appeared in a career-high 63 games and had a 3.74 ERA in 2013.
The Braves on Thursday also hired former Padres executive Chad MacDonald as special assistant to the general manager. MacDonald was the San Diego Padres' vice president and assistant general manager of player personnel from 2012-14.
