The Braves are bringing back one of their more popular players in team history, as five-time All-Star Fred 'The Crime Dog' McGriff has rejoined the franchise as a special assistant.
Former Nats catcher Jesus Flores, who was their primary backstop in 2008, has signed with the rival Atlanta Braves on a minor league deal with an invitation to spring training.
The new-look outfield of the Atlanta Braves may feature a familiar face in 2015.
