ATLANTA - The Atlanta Braves agreed today on a one-year, 850-thousand dollar contract with free-agent infielder-outfielder Chris Woodward.
The 30-year-old Woodward played the last two seasons with the New York Mets. He batted .283 in 2005, but a left shoulder injury limited him to 83 games and a .216 average last season.
Woodward has a .247 career batting average in eight seasons and has played all four infield positions and the outfield. He played in 351 games for the Toronto Blue Jays from 1999 to 2004.
