Ken Griffey Jr. is telling friends he will choose the Braves over the Mariners, sources said.

Griffey's decision has come down to Atlanta or Seattle, where he spent his first 11 major league seasons. The 39-year-old has been favoring the Braves for family reasons, as his permanent home is located in Orlando, Fla.

The 13-time All-Star was hampered by a knee injury last season and hit just .249 with 18 homers and 71 RBIs for the Reds and White Sox.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported earlier on Tuesday that Griffey and the Braves are very close to making an official agreement.
