Braves signed C John Buck to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.
The veteran catcher will be ticketed for Triple-A Gwinnett. Buck had a cool .802 OPS and 20 home runs in 2010 with the Blue Jays, but he's a very different hitter now at age 34. Buck batted just .225/.289/.281 in 97 plate appearances last season between the Mariners and Angels. Jan 26 - 3:48 PM
