Atlanta Braves Sign Speedy Outfielder

Going after some speed.

The Atlanta Braves have signed outfielder Magneuris Sierra to a minor-league contract with an invite to spring training.

Sierra elected free agency back in October and is only finding a new deal now.

The twenty-six-year-old appeared in 45 games with the Los Angeles Angels last season, posting a .165/.200/.242 triple-slash line, with five RBIs, six stolen bases and seven runs scored.

Sierra offers good speed and can play all across the outfield so he's a solid pickup for the Braves, as he'll serve as a versatile bench option. 

Last season in Triple-A Salt Lake, Sierra recorded a strong .297/.358/.795 triple-slash line, with seven home runs, 45 RBIs, 22 stolen bases and 49 runs scored over 279 at-bats.
