Braves Get Hot Stove Started; Trade Derek Lowe To Indians
According to Buster Olney of ESPN, the Braves have traded starting pitcher Derek Lowe to the Cleveland Indians.
The Braves will get 23 year old minor league reliever, Chris Jones who is currently in Single-A and is not very highly regarded. Atlanta will also pay all but $5 million of Lowe’s remaining $15 million salary.
Lowe was 9-17 with a 5.05 ERA in 34 starts last season for the Braves.
Matt Cerrone of MetsBlog thinks this could be a precursor for the Braves to make a move for Jose Reyes, but I don’t see it.
