The Atlanta Braves have agreed to terms with free-agent outfielder Jonny Gomes on a one-year Major League contract for the 2015 season, with a vesting option for 2016. Financial terms were not announced.
Gomes, 34, has played parts of 12 Major League seasons with Tampa Bay, Cincinnati, Washington, Oakland and Boston. He is a .244 career hitter with 466 runs, 155 home runs and 500 RBI. In nearly 1,500 career at-bats against left-handed pitchers, Gomes owns a .485 slugging percentage.
He split the 2014 campaign between the Red Sox and Athletics and played in 112 total games, with a .234 average, six home runs and 37 RBI.
Gomes has appeared in the postseason in four different seasons (2010, '12, '13 and '14), and won a World Series title with Boston in 2013, when he posted 13 home runs and 52 RBI in 116 games for the Red Sox.
The Braves currently have a full 40-man roster.
