Braves - Nationals

Post by jpontzer93 » Wed Jun 17, 2020 7:46 pm

Braves Trade:

RP Evan Marshall, retaining 100% of remaining salary

Nationals Trade:

LF Al Johnson (Double-A)

Braves rationale:

Marshall has struggled a lot this season and he has been the worst contributor in an otherwise good bullpen. He will be a FA at the end of the year, so the decision to DFA him and eating his salary wasn't too difficult. We will probably be a seller so saving money for 2020 isn't really a priority. Washington approached us after he cleared waivers, as they wanted salary retained, so it worked out well.

Johnson is a good character player. He's a CF right now but our scout says he will strive more in left with good defense. He hit .333/.428/.600 in Single-A before a recent call-up to Double-A.

Atlanta Braves Trade:

RP Evan Marshall, retaining 100% of remaining salary

Washington Nationals Trade:

LF Al Johnson (Double-A, Harrisburg Senators)

We made this deal to give a chance to MR Evan Marshall. Hopefully, a change of scenery would help. This will give us additional depth in the bullpen.

We traded away Johnson as we have surplus OF prospects in the minors.

Thanks, Jacob!
