Braves sign Marrero to contract extension

Postby WebHamster » Mon Feb 23, 2004 2:00 pm

Lake Buena Vista, FL (Sports Network) - The Atlanta Braves Monday signed catcher/outfielder Eli Marrero to a one-year contract extension through the 2005 campaign.

Marrero was acquired along with outfielder J.D. Drew from the St. Louis Cardinals on December 13, 2003, in exchange for relief pitchers Ray King and Jason Marquis and minor league starting pitcher Adam Wainwright.

"We are excited to have a player of Eli's ability and versatility on our roster," Atlanta manager Bobby Cox said.

The 30-year-old Marrero batted .224 with a pair of homers and 20 RBI in 41 games during an injury-plagued 2003 campaign, as he was sidelined with an ankle problem. Since starting his career in St. Louis in 1997, he has hit .238 with 43 homers and 187 RBI.

"Eli is a tremendous athlete who we will count on to be a valuable part of our club beyond this season," added executive vice president and general manager John Schuerholz.
