News: Gomes agreed to a one-year contract with the Braves on Thursday, Tim Brown of Yahoo! Sports reports.
Impact: The deal is said to also include a vesting option for 2016. Gomes finished last season with just a .657 OPS in 112 games between Boston and Oakland, but he's a career .277/.376/.485 hitter against left-handed pitching. The 34-year-old figures to at least take on a short-end platoon role in left field at the start of next season, if he doesn't claim the starting job outright.

News: The Atlanta Braves and outfielder Jonny Gomes agreed Thursday to a one-year contract with a vesting option.
Impact: Gomes, who played for Boston and Oakland in 2014, could be part of a left field platoon in a new-look outfield. He could share time with former Yankees prospect Zoilo Almonte, a switch-hitter who signed as a free agent. Gomes, 34, hit only .234 with a career-low six homers for Boston and Oakland last year. He hit .276 with four homers against left-handers.
