The Atlanta Braves have signed catcher Brian McCann and third baseman Josh Donaldson to 1-year contracts.
McCan will earn $2 million next season and Donald will pocket $23 million.
“This is as special a day for me as any I’ve had in my career,” McCann said during a news conference at SunTrust Park. “To put this uniform back on, with the love I have for this organization, the love I have for everybody from top to bottom, people I’ve known since I was 18 years old, that’s why I’m here.”
McCan played for the Braves from 2005-2013, and was a 7x All-Star in that stretch.
Donaldson played in just 52 games last season, 36 with the Blue Jays before being dealt to Cleveland. He hit .246 with eight homers and a .801 OPS.
34-year-old McCann has a career earnings of $127,699,500 from MLB contracts in his career with the Braves, Yankees, and Astros. Donaldson, who is 32, has earnings of $58,889,000.
