The Atlanta Braves acquired outfielder Jarred Kelenic, pitcher Marco Gonzales and infielder Evan White from the Seattle Mariners on Sunday night for right-handed pitchers Cole Phillips and Jackson Kowar.
The move added a veteran lefty to the Braves pitching staff, along with Kelenic, who at one time was one of baseball’s top young prospect.
In the process, Seattle cleared a chunk of salary off its payroll, giving up on Kelenic in order for the Braves to take the contracts of Gonzales and White.
Seattle is sending Atlanta cash as part of the trade.
Kelenic actually had his first decent year in the majors last season. And of course, now that he’s a Brave, he’ll probably win the MYP in 2024 because yunno, we’re jinxed like that.
