ATLANTA (AP) — The Braves have agreed to one-year contracts with pitchers Kris Medlen and Mike Minor, infielder Chris Johnson and outfielder Jordan Schafer.

Friday's agreements left the Braves with three players remaining in arbitration: closer Craig Kimbrel, first baseman Freddie Freeman and outfielder Jason Heyward.

Medlen (15-12, 3.11 ERA) and Minor (13-9, 3.21) were key members of the rotation, while Johnson surprisingly wound up second in the NL with a .321 batting average after being acquired from Ar'izona along with Justin Upton. Schafer is a backup outfielder who led Atlanta with 22 stolen bases.
