Breaking News: Braves Make Two Infielder Deals, Adding Short from Red Sox and Sending Guillorme to Angels!

The Atlanta Braves have been busy on the infield, making two significant deals on Thursday. They acquired utility infielder Zack Short from the Boston Red Sox and simultaneously traded infielder Luis Guillorme to the Los Angeles Angels, with both transactions involving cash considerations.

Guillorme, who started in multiple infield positions for the Braves this season, including second base and shortstop, struggled at the plate, batting just .150 in 20 at-bats. The 29-year-old, previously with the New York Mets, holds a career batting average of .258.

On the other hand, Short joins the Braves after being designated for assignment by the Red Sox. Prior to his brief stint in Boston, Short had been acquired from the Mets in early May. Despite limited playing time this season, Short has showcased versatility, having played at second base, third base, and shortstop.

Over his career, which includes stints with the Detroit Tigers and the Mets, Short has posted a .177 batting average with 13 home runs, 55 RBIs, and eight stolen bases in 189 games.

These moves signify the Braves’ efforts to strengthen their infield depth, with Short expected to contribute across multiple positions, providing valuable flexibility and depth to the team’s roster.
