ATLANTA -- The Atlanta Braves took another step towards completing their 2007 Major League roster today, agreeing to terms with free-agent relief pitcher Tanyon Sturtze on a one-year contract. Financial terms were not disclosed.

An 11-year Major League veteran, Sturtze has a career record of 40-44 with a 5.21 earned run average in 269 games that include 84 starts. Last season with the New York Yankees, he was 0-0 with a 7.59 earned run average in 18 games before undergoing season-ending rotator cuff surgery at the end of May.

The 36-year-old Sturtze has made two trips to the postseason in his career with the Yankees in 2004 and 2005. He has spent time with six teams: Chicago Cubs (1995-1996), Texas Rangers (1997), Chicago White Sox (1999-2000), Tampa Bay Devil Rays (2000-2002), Toronto Blue Jays (2003) and New York Yankees (2004-2006).
