Adeiny Hechavarría agreed to a $1 million, one-year contract to remain with the Braves, a move Thursday that boosted Atlanta’s infield depth. The 30-year-old signed with the Braves on Aug. 16, two days after he was released by the New York Mets. Hechavarria, known for defense, hit .328 with four home runs in 24 games with Atlanta.

The Florida Fire Frogs have found a new home, at least for this season. The Atlanta Braves’ High-A minor league affiliate will play its games this year at CoolToday Park in North Port, Fla. The Braves’ new spring training facility will be the temporary home for the Fire Frogs, who play in the Florida State League. The Fire Frogs were in need of a new home after owner David Freeman agreed to a $500,000 buyout to terminate the team’s lease at Osceola County Stadium last year.
