The Braves signed outfielder Josh Anderson to a minor-league contract on Tuesday and assigned him to Triple-A Gwinnett. Anderson, who played 40 games with the Braves in 2008, is expected to arrive at the G-Braves on Thursday.
Anderson hit .294 with three home runs, 12 RBIs and 10 stolen bases for the Braves.
It has been quite a journey for Anderson since he left the Braves, who traded him to the Tigers in March of 2009. After 74 games with the Tigers he was designated for assignment on July 24. Six days later he was traded to the Royals. He became a free agent following the season when he was non-tendered by the Royals. He signed a minor-league contract with the Reds in January and was released in May. He signed a minor-league deal with the Brewers and was released on June 11.
The G-Braves have a lack of outfielders after starters Gregor Blanco and Brent Clevlen were re-called to the majors.
