In this Reply, we respond to the Comment [Phys. Rev. D 92, 018501 (2015)]. Our computation [Phys. Rev. D 91, 074512 (2015)] only took into account pure QCD effects, arising from quark mass differences, so it is not surprising that there are discrepancies in isospin splittings and in the Sigma-Lambda mixing angle. We expect that these discrepancies will be smaller in a full calculation incorporating QED effects.
