Braves Acquire Bob Wickman

As usual, Ken Rosenthal has the scoop:  the Braves have their closer in 37 year-old Bob Wickman.  The righthander last pitched in the National League back in 2000 with the Brewers.  He has 229 career saves.


Wickman has allowed more than a hit per inning this year with the Tribe, up considerably from last year.  He's only surrendered one home run though.  His control has deteriorated a bit and his K rate is a bit down from '05. Wickman is on a one-year, $5MM deal. 

The Braves parted with 21 year-old A ball catcher Max Ramirez, who is hitting well this season.  Atlanta has good depth behind the plate so they shouldn't miss Ramirez.
