Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that the Braves have reached an agreement with Gerald Laird.

Financial terms of the deal have not been disclosed, but MLB.com's Mark Bowman hears that it's going to be a two-year contract. Laird will serve as Brian McCann's primary backup in 2013 and 2014 after batting .282/.337/.374 in 191 plate appearances as Alex Avila's understudy in 2012. The 33-year-old is doubtful to carry any sort of fantasy value in Atlanta.
