Atlanta Braves rumors: Braves interested in Nate Schierholtz

Hunter Martin

The outfielder spent five season with the Giants before being traded to the Phillies last season.

The Atlanta Braves are looking into a long time San Francisco Giants outfielder to leave an NL East rival. The Braves are reportedly interested in signing outfielder Nate Schierholtz who was traded from the Giants to the Philadelphia Phillies at the trade deadline last season with a couple minor leaguers for Hunter Pence.

Schierholtz has played six seasons in the MLB. He's never played a full season though, playing in 137 games for the Giants in their 2010 World Series championship season. Schierholtz is a career .270/.319/.409 hitter with 24 career home runs and 123 career runs batted in. His best season was arguably in 2011 when he hit .278/.326/.430 with nine home runs and 41 runs batted in. He has been worth 3.3 wins above replacement level for his career in the major leagues.

Schierholtz is a free agent and eligible for arbitration this offseason. He's also solid coming off the bench in pinch hit situations, racking up a .305 batting average over his career.
