      Chris Volstad: Signed to minor league deal with Braves

      Volstad was signed to a minor league contract by the Braves, JJ Cooper of Baseball America reports. Volstad made one appearance with the Pirates before finding his way with Triple-A Indianapolis for much of 2015. The 29-year-old will be invited to spring training, but it's unlikely he will provide Atlanta with anything more than organizational depth in 2016.

Volstad appeared in just six games for the Rockies last season, allowing 10 earned runs in 8 1/3 innings of work. He has a 4.94 ERA in 703 2/3 major-league innings in six season.
