Braves trade for right-handed reliever Silvino Bracho from Red Sox

Vaughn Grissom call up

Late in the night right before the calendar switched to July, the Braves made a trade with the Red Sox for a right-handed reliever.

Silvino Bracho last appeared in the majors in 2020 for the Diamondbacks. For his entire career, he boasts a pedestrian 4.82 ERA over 92 appearances. However, he’s put some pretty solid numbers up in AAA for the Red Sox, recording a 3.16 ERA and 10.3 K/9 in 31.1 innings. Bracho also was lights out last year in the Venezuelan Winter League.

This move is primarily for organizational depth. Hopefully, guys start to get healthy and the 29-year-old Bracho can be stashed in Gwinnett. But with nearly half the bullpen on the IL, Bracho could be needed until reinforcements arrive.
