Much of the offseason the Braves have sought a veteran to share time and teach the ropes to the 23-year-old.
Pierzynski, 37, hit .251/.288/.337 in 362 plate appearances this past season between the Red Sox and Cardinals.
The #Braves and A.J. Pierzynski have reached agreement on a 1 yr. deal Deal is pending a physical. Likely won't be official until early Jan.

Like him or not Pierzynski was a leader in the White Sox clubhouse for years. While his play is not what it was three years ago, he should do quite well as the backup in Atlanta.
The Braves should formally annouce the signing sometime in January after Pierzynski passes a physical.
