In an under-the-radar move yesterday, the Braves signed Jake Marisnick to a minor-league deal.

Marisnick has ten years of big-league experience, including a pretty impressive run with the Houston Astros. Most recently, he was a member of the Pittsburgh Pirates this season, hitting .234 with a couple of homers in 82 plate appearances.
The Braves have some issues in the outfield. Marcell Ozuna is a black hole, Eddie Rosario isn’t much better, and Ronald Acuña could become a permanent DH before long. Hopefully, we won’t have to see Jake Marisnick in Atlanta, but the Braves have to be prepared in case something happens.
