Braves Sign Joe Thurston

on .

Derrick Gould of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch brings us word that the Braves have signed utilityman Joe Thurston to a split contract with an invite to spring training. He's got a rep as a good guy, but not so much as a good baseball player. He got his first real shot in the majors last year for the Cardinals, where he hit just .225/.316/.330 in 124 games, seeing time at second, third and in left field. There's really not much to say here: the Braves are in trouble if Thurston sees the 25-man roster for any extended length of time, and we need to hope Frank Wren has his sights set higher in terms of finding another utilityman to complement Omar Infante.
