Atlanta Braves Sign Outfielder

The Atlanta Braves have added to their outfield depth, as Jake Marisnick has inked a minor league deal with the club.

Marisnick signed this contract before the September 1st deadline, so that means that the veteran can play in the postseason for the Braves this fall. That certainly isn't a bad thing when noting that he has a World Series championship on his resume.

Marisnick previously spent this season with the Pittsburgh Pirates but was released last month, In 31 games with the Pirates, he had two home runs, six RBIs, and a .234 batting average. He will now be aiming to improve on those numbers as a Brave, but he will first need to secure himself a call-up to have any shot of that occurring. Time will tell what happens on that front.
