ATLANTA -- The Atlanta Braves agree to terms with RHP Freddy Garcia -- The Braves have agreed to a minor league contract with right-hander Freddy Garcia and invited him to their big league spring training camp.

A 37-year-old right-hander, Garcia went 1-2 with a 1.65 in six games for the Braves, including three starts, after he was acquired from Baltimore last year. He also pitched six solid innings in Game 4 of the division series against the Dodgers, though after he left the Braves lost the game and the series.

Atlanta wanted a veteran to bolster a talented but young group of starters, especially after Tim Hudson signed with San Francisco. Garcia will contend for a spot in a projected rotation led by 28-year-old Kris Medlen that includes four other potential starters in their 20s.
