Braves keeping Francoeur, will add him to roster

Though Francoeur proved productive through his first two Major League seasons, he began to decline and was traded to the Mets during the 2009 season. He has since played for the Rangers, Royals, Giants, Padres and Phillies.

But now, Francoeur is truly coming home to strengthen the Braves’ bench with his right-handed power potential. He can capably handle both corner outfield spots and he has acquainted himself with center field over the past few weeks.

And there was much rejoicing at BTF!!!

Jeff Francoeur returns to Atlanta Braves organization

Well, at least he knows Delta flies there.

The Braves agreed to terms Monday with outfielder Jeff Francoeur on a one-year minor league contract for the 2016 season.  The deal includes an invitation to major league spring training.

Originally drafted 23rd overall by Atlanta in 2002, Francoeur made his major league debut with the Braves in 2005. He played in 631 games with Atlanta, hitting .266 (653-for-2,453) with 78 home runs before being traded to the New York Mets in 2009. Francoeur also played with Texas, Kansas City, San Francisco San Diego and Philadelphia.
