Atlanta Braves Acquire OF Christian Marrero From The Chicago White Sox

The Atlanta Braves agreed to send cash considerations to the Chicago White Sox in return for minor-league outfielder Christian Marrero on Wednesday:

This is the second such deal between the two teams in as many seasons, as Atlanta acquired Stefan Gartrell from Chicago in a similar trade in 2011.

Marrero, a 6'1 185 outfielder from Miami, was originally drafted by the Braves in 20th round of the 2004 draft before joining the White Sox after being drafted in the 22nd round of the 2005 draft.

The 25 year old, who has spent his entire career in the Chicago organization, has played mostly in Double-AA Birmingham for most of the last three seasons. In 2011, he hit .293/.385/.476 with 12 HR's while splitting time between 1B, RF and LF.

However, his offensive production has not been able to off-set his defensive ability, which is considered marginal, so the Braves were able to take a flier on him without giving up any baseball assets.
