KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) — The Atlanta Braves have been on a signing spree.

So far they've locked up first baseman Freddie Freeman, right fielder Jason Heyward, starter Julio Teheran, and closer Craig Kimbrel.

On Wednesday, the Braves extended the contracts of general manager Frank Wren and manager Fredi Gonzalez.

Wren and Gonzalez were entering the final years of their contracts and Braves president John Schuerholz simply said he wanted the deals to be done as soon as possible. Terms and the amount of the contracts were not disclosed.

Schuerholz made the announcement before the first full-squad workout of the spring.
