Reaches deal with Atlanta

January 19, 2019
Aro agreed Thursday with the Braves on a minor-league contract, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.
The 28-year-old had a cup of coffee in the big leagues with Seattle in 2016 but has pitched exclusively at the Triple-A level the past two seasons. As a member of Triple-A El Paso in the Padres organization in 2018, Aro accrued a 3.89 ERA and 1.30 WHIP across 44 frames. He'll likely function as a depth arm for Atlanta during the upcoming season and is a long shot to surface in the big leagues.

2016 Fantasy Outlook
The foibles of Boston's bullpen in 2015 created opportunities for several lesser-known minor leaguers, including Aro, who had three separate stints with the big league club. Apart from his tours in Boston, Aro began the season at Double-A Portland and then pitched mostly at Triple-A Pawtucket, all in a middle-relief role. That's his upside — pitching in the sixth or seventh innings, though he's been used for multiple innings wherever he's pitched. He averaged over two innings per appearance last season in the minors, and Aro was considered for a start late in the season when the Red Sox were scrambling for arms. He throws mostly a four-seam fastball/slider mix — pretty standard fare for a middle reliever — but will add an occasional changeup and sinker. The Red Sox traded Aro to the Mariners in the offseason along with Wade Miley, and Aro will presumably get a chance to compete for a front-end job in spring training.
