ATLANTA (AP) - Left-hander Wandy Rodriguez and the Atlanta Braves have agreed to a minor league contract.

Rodriguez, who turns 36 Sunday, will attend big league spring training and compete for the fifth spot in the rotation. If he is added to the 40-man roster, he would get a one-year contract for $2 million.

Rodriguez was 0-2 with a 6.75 ERA last year in six starts with Pittsburgh, which released him on May 30. Rodriquez appeared in only 12 games in 2013 due to a left forearm injury.

Beginning in 2008, Rodriguez posted six straight seasons with an ERA under 4.00 with Houston and Pittsburgh. His has a 91-94 with a 4.06 ERA in 248 starts and 10 relief appearances.
