Seems quite likely to me. He has a $25 million option with a $10 buyout,

so he's going to get bought out and be a FA. He's a borderline HOFer who needs a few more good years to improve his chances, and would have to like his chances of getting run support and making it to the playoffs with the Braves. The Braves like the one year high dollar deal ($18 million to Cole Hamels), but might be willing to go to 2 or 3 for a discount, and considering that he's made almost $200 million in his career I imagine he won't drive too hard a bargain to play for a winning team in his home city. He would seem to be a near ideal veteran to add to their potentially dominant rotation of Fried, Soroka, and Anderson, with Wright and Kenny Powers also around.
