Jordan played for Atlanta from 1999 through 2001, then was traded to Los Angeles in the deal for Gary Sheffield and spent two years with the Dodgers before playing last season with the Texas Rangers.
The Braves had two corner outfield spots to fill this off-season and signed a pair of former All-Stars for both positions. Jordan, an All-Star with Atlanta in 1999, is ticketed to play left field this season, while two-time All-Star Raul Mondesi was signed last week to man right field.
Jordan played right field with the Braves and hit .281 with 65 homers in his three-year stint, but he has been limited by injuries the past few seasons. He played 128 games in 2002, but a season-ending knee injury in June of 2003 allowed him to play just 66 games that season.
Last year, in his only American League campaign, Jordan appeared in just 61 games and hit only .222 with five homers and 23 runs batted in.
Jordan, who will turn 38 at the end of March and has a residence in Atlanta, spent eight seasons with St. Louis before joining the Braves and is a lifetime .284 hitter with 178 home runs.
