    Braves extend Teheran

    David O'Brien ‏@ajcbraves 3 min
    #Braves sign Teheran to 6-yr extension
    This extension will be for his next two pre arbitration years and his arbitration years and his first year of free agency with an option to his second year of free agency, this is good news since he will be cost controllable for a good amount of time. I thought Freeman deserved his own thread so this is why I'm making this one for Teheran.

    I am happy to see the Braves were looking to the future and signing their young players.

    This is beautiful! I can't wait to see the actual numbers though, and now I am starting to wonder if we trade Kimbrel?

    9:55am: Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports (via Twitter) that Teheran's extension is worth a guaranteed $32.4MM, meaning he falls slightly short of Madison Bumgarner's $35MM record for a pitcher with one to two years of Major League service time.
    Seems like a nice deal.

    Seems like a pretty solid deal. Now get Simmons locked up!

    I believe Simmons will be the next extension target or at least I hope he is.

    It could be $44.4M over 7 seasons, if the Braves use the $12M option for his age 29 season. There's a lot to like about the deal.

    I would like to see Minor targeted next.

    Good deal right under what Bumgarner got so I'm fine with it.

    Teheran received a $1 million signing bonus and will earn $800,000 in 2014. His annual salaries will go up to $1 million in 2015, $3.3 million in 2016, $6.3 million in 2017, $8 million in 2018 and $11 million in 2019. For those interested.

    This deal has risk for both sides, but more risk for the Braves. If Teheran gets hurt and becomes less of a pitcher for it, the Braves are on the hook for that much money. He was going to get the league minimum for two more seasons, then 3 years of arbitration. The record for arbitration in each year is $4.35M, $7.37M and $12.4M. Even if Teheran met those records, he'd be earning close to what he gets before his first FA season. For his first FA season, he will make $11M and has a $12M option for his second FA season.

    I think both sides win. Teheran gets top dollar in terms of what players get from the arbitration process, but the Braves get a bargain on the age 28 and 29 seasons of a potential ace.

    I think it was a good deal for both sides, we are talking about a guy with one year of experience in the league, in fact he got the biggest deal ever for a pitcher with that small track record.

    To anyone who doesn't like it or is on the fence just remember in this market the longer you wait the more you pay, as long as he is healthy I have no problem with this deal.
