The Atlanta Braves announced on Friday that they had tendered contracts to their full 40-man roster ending the speculation that players like outfielder Adam Duvall or reliever Arodys Vizcaino were on the bubble.

Atlanta entered the day with eight players that were arbitration eligible. They were pitchers Vizcaino, Mike Foltynewicz, Kevin Gausman, Sam Freeman, Dan Winkler, Jonny Venters, infielder Charlie Culberson and Duvall. The team reached an agreement with Venters earlier Friday evening on a non-guaranteed $2.25 million deal.
Duvall and Vizcaino were the two players that seemed to be in the most jeopardy. Duvall struggled in a reduced role after he was acquired from the Cincinnati Reds. He is projected for a $3.1 million salary in arbitration. Vizcaino was an interesting case as well. He pitched well when healthy last season but was sent to the disabled list twice due to a shoulder injury. His arbitration projection is around $4.8 million.
