The Atlanta Braves and free-agent infielder Adeiny Hechavarria have agreed to a one-year, $1-million contract, the team announced Thursday.

The defensive-minded journeyman is entering his ninth MLB season. He's spent time with the Braves, Toronto Blue Jays, Miami Marlins, Tampa Bay Rays, Pittsburgh Pirates, New York Yankees, and New York Mets.

Hechavarria, 30, batted .241/.299/.443 over 84 games between the Braves and Mets in 2019. He was released by the Mets in August and subsequently signed in Atlanta. After joining the Braves, he hit .328 with four home runs in 24 games.

Though he's primarily been used as a shortstop throughout his professional career, Hechavarria split time between short and second base last season. He'll serve as a backup option to middle infielders Ozzie Albies and Dansby Swanson.
