Flande Signs with Braves

LHP Yohan Flande signed a minor league deal with Atlanta yesterday that came with an invite to Spring Training.  The 24 year old Dominican native was a member of the Phils 40 man roster until he was recently removed to clear space for the Rule 5 draft.  The Phils were hoping to resign Flande who went 10-8 with a 4.38 ERA in 27 starts for AA Reading last year.  Flande’s career in the Phils organization stalled in AA after seeing a good deal of success of High A Clearwater. Over two seasons, FLande made 40 starts in AA and went 14-12 with a 4.44 ERA. His WHIP stood at 1.42.
