The Atlanta Braves are bringing back reliever Joe Jimenez on a three-year, $26 million deal.

The team announced the contract terms with the 28-year-old right-hander on Thursday.

Jimenez finished 0-3 with a 3.04 ERA in 59 appearances in 2023, striking out 73 batters in 56 1/3 innings.

He played his first six major league seasons with the Detroit Tigers, making the All-Star team in 2018.

Jimenez is 19-22 with 20 saves and a 4.86 ERA in 356 career appearances, all out of the bullpen.

The Braves re-signed right-handed reliever Pierce Johnson to a two-year, $14.25 million deal last week.
