Indians trade Nick Swisher, Michael Bourn to Braves for Chris Johnson

Trade Brohio for Brotlanta?

The Cleveland Indians have traded outfielder Michael Bourn and outfielder/first baseman Nick Swisher to the Braves in exchange for third baseman Chris Johnson. The Indians are sending money to the Braves as part of the trade….

Essentially, these are players who have fallen out of favor in their current situations swapped for each other. Problem for problem(s).

Where the money comes in would be here:

Bourn/Swisher: Due $29 million in 2016
Johnson: Due $16.5 million through 2017

Swisher might see time at first base with Freddie Freeman injured while it’s possible Bourn sees time as a starter on occasion at any of the three outfield spots, but this move wasn’t about upgrading the 2015 Braves..
