Braves To Sign Jack Wilson

The Braves have agreed to re-sign shortstop Jack Wilson to a one-year deal, MLB.com's Mark Bowman tweets. The PSI Sports Management client will earn a $1MM base salary and could earn $500K more by reaching incentives, Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reports (Twitter links).

Wilson, 34, hit .243/.274/.285 for the Mariners and Braves in 2011, appearing at second, short and third. Better known for his defense than for his offense, Wilson has a 5.0 UZR/150 for his career. He figures to back up prospect Tyler Pastornicky at short and could spell Chipper Jones at third base if necessary.
