AP source: Braves, Sean Rodriguez agree to two-year deal

ATLANTA (AP) A person familiar with the situation says the Atlanta Braves have agreed to an $11.5 million, two-year contract with utility player Sean Rodriguez.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press on Saturday because the agreement will not become official until Rodriguez passes a physical.

Rodriguez, 31, provides depth with major league starts at every position except catcher. He hit .270 with 18 homers and 56 RBI for Pittsburgh in 2016. He has a .234 career batting average in nine seasons with the Los Angeles Angels, Tampa Bay and Pittsburgh.

Rodriguez has his most career starts at second base but saw more time at first base with the Pirates last season.
