Braves Bring in Bourn

The Braves acquired Michael Bourn from the Houston Astros for Jordan Schafer and 3 minor league pitchers. The Braves had missed out on other outfield options in Carlos Beltran (Giants) and Hunter Pence (Phillies) to fellow National League contenders.

Michael Bourn – The all-star center fielder brings the Braves gold glove defense in the outfield along with a .300 hitter and speed on the base paths.

Jordan Schafer – Looks for a new start in Houston. Schafer reached the majors with high expectations but at this point has had a tough time putting it together.  The Astros also acquired LHP Brett Oberholtzer, RHP Paul Clemens and RHP Juan Abreu.
