ATLANTA -- The Atlanta Braves today agreed to terms with free-agent infielder/outfielder Chris Woodward on a one-year contract for the 2007 season. Financial terms of the deal were not announced.

Woodward, 30, played the last two seasons with the New York Mets. He batted .283 in 2005, but a left shoulder injury limited him to 83 games and a .216 average in 2006.

For the Braves, Woodward is expected to see time as an infielder and outfielder. He owns a .247 career batting average and in his eight Major League seasons he has played shortstop (302 games), second base (70), first base (43), third base (40) and the outfield (32).

Woodward began his career with the Toronto Blue Jays in 1995 and reached the majors in 1999, playing in 351 games for the Blue Jays from 1999 to 2004.
