OF Jordan Luplow

A veteran outfielder, Luplow signed a minor league deal with the Braves on January 10. Luplow slashed .208/.322/.325 a year ago across 39 games in the major leagues and was assigned to Triple-A on the same day that Atlanta signed him.

RHP Penn Murfee

Murfee, a right-handed pitcher, was originally claimed off waivers by Atlanta back on November 14 from the New York Mets, and despite electing free agency shortly after, would sign with the Braves as a free agent later that month. The reliever owned a 1.29 ERA and 16:10 K/BB ratio across 14 IP in the major leagues a year ago and is likely to compete for a bullpen spot in Spring Training.

LHP Angel Perdomo

The Braves claimed Perdomo off waivers from the Pittsburgh Pirates back on November 6, and the left-hander was signed as a free agent nearly a month later. Coming off a season in which he held a 3.72 ERA and 44:11 K/BB ratio across 29 IP, the left-hander will miss all of the 2024 season rehabbing from Tommy John so he won't be a factor for Atlanta until 2025.

RHP Jackson Stephens

A familiar face to Braves' fans, Stephens was brought back by Atlanta as a free agent on November 30. Stephens, who was a key member of Atlanta's 2022 bullpen, had only 12 innings pitched a year ago in the big leagues, and will likely compete for a bullpen spot this Spring.
