LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — Reliever Jordan Walden and the Atlanta Braves have agreed to a $1.49 million, one-year contract that avoided salary arbitration.

Walden would earn a $10,000 performance bonus under Thursday's deal if he has 30 games finished next season.

Acquired from the Los Angeles Angels in November 2012, Walden was 4-3 with a 3.45 ERA this year with 54 strikeouts in 47 innings. He made $541,500.

Eight Braves remain eligible to file for arbitration next month: right-handers Brandon Beachy, Craig Kimbrel and Kris Medlen; left-hander Mike Minor; first baseman Freddie Freeman; infielder Chris Johnson; and outfielders Jason Heyward and Jordan Schafer.
