The Atlanta Braves have signed veteran utility man Martin Prado to a one-year contract.
David O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that “The deal, which will pay Prado between $4.5 and $5 million, has no real bearing on the whether the Braves end up trading him because any conversations have come with the understanding that Prado would draw this kind of salary for 2012.”
The Braves also signed infielder Jack Wilson to a one-year deal.
