ATLANTA – The Atlanta Braves today signed OF Adam Duvall to a one-year major league contract worth $3 million for the 2024 season. Duvall returns to Atlanta after playing parts of five seasons with the club from 2018-22. 

Duvall, 35, played the 2023 season with Boston and batted .247/.303/.531 with 21 home runs and 58 RBI in 92 games, compiling 1.6 bWAR. He earned a pair of AL Player of the Week awards, first in the opening week of the season and again in August. Among players with at least 300 at-bats last season, his rate of 15.24 at-bats per home run ranked eighth in the American League.

The 6-foot-1, 233-pound native of Louisville, Ky., has batted .232/.291/.472 over a 10-year major league career, with 184 home runs and 536 RBI in 922 games. An All-Star with Cincinnati in 2016, Duvall has five career 20-homer seasons and led the majors with 113 RBI in 2021. Originally acquired by the Braves from the Reds in 2018, he batted .224/.285/.464 in 272 games over parts of five years with Atlanta, and hit three postseason home runs during the club’s run to the World Series title in 2021. 

Originally drafted by the San Francisco Giants in the 11th round of the 2010 First-Year Player Draft out of the University of Louisville, Duvall made his major league debut with the club in 2014. He has also appeared with Cincinnati (2015-18), Atlanta (2018-22), Miami (2021) and Boston (2023) in his career.
