The Braves have added a veteran with plenty of postseason experience to their roster, though there's no guarantee that he'll play a meaningful role with the team in that capacity.
According to RADIO.COM Sports MLB insider Jon Heyman, two-time All-Star and 2012 World Series MVP Pablo Sandoval is headed to the Braves on a minors deal.
