The Atlanta Braves have signed LHP Daniel Rodriguez from the Mexican League. Rodriguez is in Atlanta to get a physical, and then throw a bullpen session, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's David O'Brien.
Once Rodriguez gets a visa, he is going to be sent to pitch for Triple-A Gwinnett.
