Atlanta Lands Catcher
ATLANTA (AP) — Catcher Kurt Suzuki reportedly is heading to the National League.
A person familiar with the negotiations tells The Associated Press that the Atlanta Braves have worked out a one-year contract with Suzuki, pending a physical. The 33-year-old likely will share time with returning starter Tyler Flowers.
Suzuki spent the last three seasons with Minnesota, batting .263 with 160 RBIs and 92 extra-base hits in 368 games. He hit .288 for the 2014 Twins, his lone All-Star season.
