The Atlanta Braves and outfielder Jonny Gomes have reportedly agreed to a one-year deal.
The 34-year-old hit .234 with a .320 on-base percentage, six home runs and 35 RBI last season, splitting time with the Boston Red Sox and Oakland Athletics. He was traded to Oakland along with Jon Lester at July's trade deadline.
Mark Bowman of MLB.com reported on Tuesday that the Braves were pursuing Gomes as a potential left-field platoon mate with Zoilo Almonte.
The Braves finished 79-83 last season, tied for second in the NL East.
