Maddux, who will be 37 April 14, went 16-6 with a 2.62 ERA last year to join Cy Young as the only pitchers in Major League history to win at least 15 games in 15 consecutive seasons. The four-time Cy Young winner has a 16-year career record of 273-152 with a 2.83 ERA. His 273 wins rank 28th on the all-time list and his 213 wins since the start of 1991 are the most in the majors.
Maddux earned his 13th straight Rawlings Gold Glove last season.
"We're delighted this issue is resolved and that we can now focus on his stature as a pitcher and his production for our team," John Schuerholz, Braves Executive Vice President and General Manager, said. "We look forward to his contribution to our efforts to compete for a 12th consecutive division title."
Terms of the contract were not disclosed. The Braves had offered $13.5 million and Maddux had asked for $16 million.
