Watch out Astros, someone else has entered the firesale race!
The Atlanta Braves have acquired outfielder Reed Johnson and left-handed starting pitcher Paul Maholm from the Chicago Cubs.
Malholm is a having a solid year with a 3.74 ERA and a 1.238 WHIP. He should fit into the Braves rotation as the fourth or fifth starter, giving the rotation two left-handed starters.
Johnson gives the Braves a veteran outfielder and right-handed bench bat. Atlanta has been searching for an additional right-handed bat all year, but with the injury to Matt Diaz, it became necessary to acquire another right-handed option.
Johnson is hitting .307/.361/.452 this season, which are a tick above his career numbers.
