Roger McDowell's future with the Atlanta Braves is no longer questioned after the team signed him to a new two-year contract.

McDowell, who had just one year left on his contract and had been one of the lowest paid coaches in Major League Baseball, had been the subject of numerous rumors involving managerial and the Philadelphia Phillies' pitching coach position.

"We are happy that Roger will continue to lead our Major League pitching staff," Braves general manager Frank Wren said on "Our staff has performed very well under his guidance."

The 2013 season was McDowell's eighth in Atlanta, and the Braves' ERA has dropped every year since 2008. The Braves led MLB with a 3.18 ERA and were second with  2.54 walks per nine innings pitched.
