The Atlanta Braves have signed Adeiny Hechavarria to help fill the void at shortstop with Dansby Swanson still on the injured list.
The 30-year-old agreed to a one-year, prorated contract. The Braves are his sixth team in three years.
Hechavarria made his debut on Friday night against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Swanson, Atlanta's shortstop, has missed 22 games because of a right foot contusion and still has no immediate timetable for a rehab assignment.
