Not a bad move by Braves. Those two guys were going nowhere and who knows, maybe Arcia can still turn a corner.

Are the Braves down on Swanson?

Not that anyone has said. Their bench is a catastrophe, and Arcia is probably an upgrade on Ehire Adrianza and definitely an upgrade on Johan Camargo.

The Breweers seem really weird right now. They trade off Grisham to get Luis Urias who I know was a bit of a prospect but also so far has the same track record as Arcia and is only two years younger. They sign Wong forcing them to move Hiura to 1B; they're carrying the pretty much useless if he's not playing against every RHP Vogelbach to the bench; they have an OF of Yelich, Cain and Avisail Garcia but sign Bradley. Now they trade Arcia which seems to give the starting 3B job back to Travis Shaw. Or are they going to try Hiura at 3B? (he's never played it)

They still look like a decent enough team by NLC standards, especially if this Corbin Burnes guy is for real, but it seems a lot of re-arranging of redundant deck chairs.
