The Braves’ first addition of the trade deadline was Eddie Rosario of the Indians, who was acquired in a salary dump. All the Braves had to give up in return was Pablo Sandoval. Rosario is in a bit of a down year, recording just a .685 OPS over 78 games. However, in his three seasons prior with the Twins, Rosario never finished with an OPS lower than .792. This is a pretty solid addition, and he cost the Braves essentially nothing.
Unfortunately, Rosario is currently on the Injured List with an abdominal strain. He’s been out since the All-Star break, and the latest update from the Indians is that there was no timetable for his return. However, the Braves appear to be well aware of the situation, as Mark Bowman reported after the trade that he is likely a couple of weeks away from returning.

Let’s hope Rosario doesn’t suffer any setbacks, but Anthopoulos tripled up on outfielders at the trade deadline, adding Adam Duvall and Jorge Soler as well. We will see how Brian Snitker chooses to utilize them once they are all healthy.
