Braves Sign Utility Infielder Blake DeWitt

The Atlanta Braves have added more depth to their system by signing utility infielder Blake DeWitt to a minor league deal. DeWitt is a former first round pick by the Dodgers, who went to the Cubs as part of the Ted Lilly trade in 2010. He's primarily played second base and third base, but has also played some left field.

He will likely compete for a backup infield spot in spring training. His power never developed at higher levels in the minor leagues, and at 27 he's pretty much just going to be a light hitting utility guy.
