Cole Hamels agrees to one-year deal with Braves

Free-agent starting pitcher Cole Hamels has agreed to a one-year, $18 million deal with the Atlanta Braves, according to MLB insider Jeff Passan.

Fantasy Impact

Hamels and the Braves seemed like a match heading into the offseason, with Atlanta preferring to supplement their rotation with a veteran pitcher on a short deal who was not tied to draft pick compensation. He did not receive a $17.8 million qualifying offer from the Cubs but ended up signing a one-year deal with the Braves for slightly above that mark after striking out 143 batters with a 3.81 ERA over 141 2/3 innings last season.
