LAKE BUENA VISTA , Fla. -- Peter Moylan defied the odds when he used his stint on Team Australia's 2006 World Baseball Classic roster to land a spot in Atlanta's bullpen just a few weeks later. But if possible, the veteran reliever is facing greater odds as he attempts to make a long climb back to the Majors.
Moylan gained the opportunity on Thursday, when the Braves gave him a Minor League contract. The club hasn't confirmed the deal.
