The Atlanta Braves, Milwaukee Brewers, and Oakland Athletics have agreed to a triangular trade for nine players, including catcher Sean Murphy.
MLB.com, which delivers news of the American professional baseball major league (MLB), reported on the 13th (Korean time) that Atlanta had agreed to a triangular trade that included sending six players to Oakland and Milwaukee in exchange for catcher Murphy.
Accepted by Atlanta, Murphy has a career batting average of .236 since making his MLB debut in 2019. Although his batting average was low, he showed off his slugging power by recording double-digit home runs for the second consecutive year with 17 home 메이저사이트 runs last year and 18 this year. In addition, Murphy is recognized for his ability as a defensive catcher with excellent blocking, framing, and steal-blocking abilities.
Atlanta has released three prospects to recruit Murphy, including catchers William Contreras and Manny Pigna, and right-handed pitcher Justin Yeager. William Contreras and Yeager, younger brothers of Wilson Contreras, who played for the Chicago Cubs and transferred to the St. Louis Cardinals through the free agency (FA) market, moved to Milwaukee.
In addition, Piña and Atlanta prospects 1st, 6th, and 18th, left-handed pitcher Kyle Mueller, and right-handed pitchers Freddie Tannock and Royber Salinas crossed over to Oakland.
Milwaukee also released a player. Milwaukee’s eighth-ranked outfielder Estonia Ruiz has moved to Oakland. Oakland, which gave away Murphy to Atlanta, also sent right-handed pitcher Joel Fayamps to Milwaukee.
