Fueled by Mike Hampton’s latest injury setback, the Braves have inked the veteran left-hander to a minor league deal. Besides Roger Clemens, he was the last starter left on the market.
Redman, 33, would get a $750,000, one-year deal with a chance to earn $500,000 in performance bonuses based on starts, according to FoxSports’ Ken Rosenthal. Redman was an All-Star last season with Kansas City, going 11-10 with a 5.71 ERA. In parts of eight seasons, he is 64-76 with a 4.65 ERA in 186 starts and 12 relief appearances.
Trivia: Who was the last player to receive a minor league contract after a year in which he made the All-Star team?
