The Braves announced on Thursday that they acquired right-handed relief pitcher Jorge Vasquez from the Royals in exchange for outfielder Eli Marrero and cash considerations.
Vasquez, 26, made his major-league debut last season, appearing in two games and allowing three earned runs in 3 1/3 innings pitched. He spent the majority of the season with the Kansas City's Triple-A team in Wichita, where he went 4-5 with a 4.68 earned run average and 18 saves in 49 relief appearances covering 59 2/3 innings. Originally signed by the Royals on Sept. 1, 1998, as a non-drafted free agent, Vasquez led the Kansas City minor-league system with 29 saves in 2003.
Marrero, acquired in a trade with the St. Louis Cardinals last offseason, hit .320 with 10 home runs and 40 RBI in more than 90 games as a platoon outfielder.
