Braves Re-Signs Remlinger

Left-handed reliever Mike Remlinger agreed to a $3.2 million, two-year contract extension with the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday, with a club option for a third year.

Remlinger, 33, was 10-1 with a 2.37 ERA and one save during the regular season.

He will earn $1.4 million in 2000 and $1.6 million in 2001, with a club option of $2 million with a $200,000 buyout for 2002.

Remlinger signed a one-year contract for $1.1 million for this season after being acquired along with second baseman Bret Boone from the Cincinnati Reds in November for Denny Neagle, Michael Tucker and minor league pitcher Rob Bell.
