The Atlanta Braves acquired 2-time Gold Glove center fielder Michael Bourn from the Houston Astros in exchange for four players and some cash. Atlanta gave up outfielder Jordan Schafer, as well as minor league prospects Brett Oberholtzer, Paul Clemens and Juan Abreau.
Apparently, this was a very low price to pay for the 28 year old outfielder. Houston also traded outfielder Hunter Pence this weekend in exchange for four players. They’re going to need to build a new dormitory.
Here’s the only highlight I could find of Bourn online.
