Across the last decade-plus, the Atlanta Braves have made some impactful free agent signings. Some of which went on to become some of the organization's top players for years to come. So, with that thought in mind, let's rewind back to the 2009-10 offseason, and list the biggest free agent signing by the Atlanta Braves each year from then to now.

2009-10: LHP Billy Wagner

Beginning with the 2009-10 offseason, the Braves also added the likes of Troy Glaus and Eric Hinske that year via free agency, but arguably neither had a more significant impact than Wagner. A veteran reliever who had six All-Star appearances at the time, Wagner would spent his final MLB season with Atlanta in 2010 as the Braves closer, and posted a 7-2 record with a 1.43 ERA and 104:22 K:BB ratio across 69.1 IP, as well as 37 saves in his seventh-career All-Star season.

2010-11: OF Eric Hinske

In an offseason that was bit of a quieter one for Atlanta when it came to free agent signings, likely the biggest that year came from the Braves bringing back Hinske. After posting a .793 OPS with 11 HR and 51 RBI across 131 games in 2010, Hinske went on to post a solid 2011 campaign for the Braves, slashing .233/.311/.403 with 10 HR and 28 RBI across 117 games.

2011-12: RHP Peter Moylan

The 2011-12 offseason was one of the quietest on this list for free agent signings, as arguably the biggest from that year being Moylan having been brought back on a minor league deal. Moylan, who had spent the previous six seasons in the Braves bullpen, would make eight appearances for Atlanta that season posting a 1-0 record with a 1.80 ERA, a 2:2 K:BB ratio, and one save across five IP.

2012-13: OF B.J. Upton

Upton was easily the biggest signing from the 2012-13 offseason for the Braves, with the outfielder going on to spend two seasons with the club at the MLB level. Across the 2013 and 2014 seasons combined, Upton slashed .198/.279/.314 with 21 HR, 61 RBI, and 32 SB across 267 games with the Braves.
