FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Braves have acquired Michael Bourn from the Astros in exchange for four minor leaguers.
The Braves have been wanting an outfielder for a while now, preferably one that hits right-handed, but they've instead just grabbed the best one that's available. Bourn leads all of baseball in stolen bases with 39, has had a great year at the plate (.303/.363/.403) and will give Atlanta a dynamite defensive center fielder. There's no word yet on who the Braves gave up, but it's sure to be at least one of their "big four" pitching prospects. Astros fans, it's time to put those season tickets on eBay.
