Gettin´ Jiggy Wit It – Braves sign Will Smith

November 15 2019 2:12 AM

The Atlanta Braves have bolstered their bullpen with the signing of MLB All-Star closer Will Smith.

Not to be mistaken with his namesake and the famous American actor, Smith signed a three-year deal worth $40million on Thursday.

Smith's deal with the Braves also includes a $13m club option ($1m buyout) for 2023.

The 30-year-old pitcher – who started his career with the Kansas City Royals in 2012 before joining the Milwaukee Brewers in 2014 – arrives from the San Francisco Giants, where he converted 34 of his 38 save opportunities in 2019.

Smith also earned his first All-Star selection, having posted a 2.76 ERA over 63 appearances and limited opponents to a .196 batting average.
