A's Acquire Ryan Langerhans

According to Baseball Digest Daily, the A's acquired outfielder Ryan Langerhans from the Braves for a player to be named later or cash considerations.  Given the recent trade for Chris Denorfia, the A's will have decent outfield depth in 2008.  Perhaps this means they won't be re-signing Milton Bradley.

Langerhans, 27, was off to a 2 for 41 start this year.  The trade should leave Matt Diaz and Craig Wilson with some extra playing time for Atlanta.  It could also make Scott Thorman a full-timer. 

Langerhans posted an excellent 13.7% walk rate last year, but he's still well below average offensively for a left fielder.  His defense is his main asset.  The Indians had expressed interest in Langerhans in the past.
