ATLANTA - Free-agent outfielder Garret Anderson has reached a preliminary agreement with the Atlanta Braves on a one-year deal.

Anderson is expected to undergo a physical on Monday or Tuesday, according to a person familiar with the negotiations who spoke Sunday on condition of anonymity because the deal hasn't been finalized.

The Braves acted quickly after Ken Griffey Jr. spurned them to return to Seattle on Wednesday, securing one of the best outfielders left on the market. Anderson hit .293 with 15 homers and 84 RBIs in 145 games with the Los Angeles Angels last year.
