Atlanta Braves add potential bench depth with journeyman Yangervis Solarte

The Atlanta Braves quickly got back down to business on Wednesday, signing 32-year-old Venezuelan, Yangervis Solarte, to a one-year minor-league contract that comes with an invite to Spring Training.

Just like Charlie Culberson's deal signed in December, the switch-hitting Solarte will earn $1 million in 2020 salary if he makes the team this Spring.

Obviously this addition isn't the move we've all been waiting for, but as Spring Training quickly approaches, even the smaller and less exciting transactions will be necessary in the coming weeks.
