The Atlanta Braves surprised no one Tuesday when they picked up the 2013 options they held on all three eligible players. Tim Hudson, Paul Maholm and Brian McCann will don the tomahawk next season.

The moves were expected, though there had been rumors of the Braves turning down McCann's option after a sub-par 2012 season, during which he hit a career-low .230. Frank Wren said it had already been written in stone that all three options would be exercised.

“There was very little discussion,” Wren said. “All three guys are important parts of our club.”

Hudson, 37, will make $9 million next season, while the 30-year-old Maholm will rake in $6.5 million. McCann's deal is the most expensive at $12 million.

Stay tuned to Braves 101, as we'll break down what each deal means for each player.
