Braves Sign Anderson to One-Year Deal

By  | 

The Atlanta Braves completed a $2.5 million, one-year contract with Garret Anderson on Tuesday after he passed a physical.

The 36-year-old Anderson had spent his entire 15-year career
with the Los Angeles Angels, where he made three All-Star
appearances and batted .300 or better seven times.

With his new team, the left-handed hitter will likely platoon in
left field with Matt Diaz.

The Braves turned to Anderson after a deal for Ken Griffey Jr.
fell through. Anderson batted .293 with 15 homers and 84 RBIs in
145 games last season and made $12 million.
