Braves Add Two Players In Separate Deals

The Atlanta Braves today made two acquisitions in deals with two separate teams.

They announced this morning they have acquired a player to be named later or cash considerations from the Los Angeles Angels in exchange for infielder Luis Guillorme. Guillorme was on a one-year, $1.1 million deal as part of an agreement to take on the $12.5 million due to David Fletcher at the end of the 2025 season. That deal came as one of the expenses of locking in Jarred Kelenic for five years. 

The Braves’ reason for trading Guillorme was to make salary room for their other acquisition today, Boston Red Sox infielder Zach Short. He was acquired for cash considerations from the Sox. 

Short was with the Sox for only eight games after he was traded from the New York Mets for cash considerations. He was on the field twice for the Sox, going hitless with four strikeouts and seven at-bats.
