Braves Sign Outfielder Josh Anderson

From Mark Bowman's blog on, here is a note about a Minor League signing of our old friend Josh Anderson:

To compensate for the lack of outfielders in Gwinnett, the Braves have signed Josh Anderson to a Minor League deal.  Anderson hit .294 with three homers in the 40 games he played for Atlanta in 2008.  The speedy outfielder has spent the past two years within the Tigers and Royals organizations.

He was one of those outfielders competing for the starting center field job last spring training (2009), but lost out to Jordan Schafer. Anderson was traded to Detroit for Minor League pitcher Rudy Darrow.
