Braves Acquire Jeff Fiorentino

The Braves acquired outfielder Jeff Fiorentino from the Orioles for cash, reports David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Fiorentino, 28, signed a minor league deal to return to the Orioles in January after spending a year in Japan.  The Orioles drafted him in the third round in 2004, and he owns a .270/.341/.324 line in 173 plate appearances.  Last year he hit .246/.356/.325 in 151 plate appearances for the Hiroshima Carp. He'll report to Double-A initially, reports O'Brien.
