A little over a month ago it appeared that left handed relief pitcher Eric O’Flaherty was on his way to re-signing with the Atlanta Braves.
Now the guy who passed along that information, David O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, is saying that the team and O’Flaherty have not had any recent discussions.
#Braves haven't had any recent discussions with free agent lefty O'Flaherty.

O’Flaherty is recovering from Tommy John surgery and is not expected to be ready util after the season starts.
No other teams have publicly been linked to O’Flaherty .
