Braves Acquire Paul Janish

The Braves have acquired shortstop Paul Janish from the Reds in exchange for right-hander Todd Redmond, tweets Mark Bowman of  Atlanta has confirmed the deal in a press release.

Janish, 29, has spent 2012 with Triple-A Louisville after playing 114 games for the Reds last season.  The shortstop has never been much of a hitter but boasts a very strong glove.  Janish owns a .221/.289/.302 slash line in 324 career games and could offer support at shortstop in the absence of Andrelton Simmons.

Redmond, 27, has never appeared in a big league game.  The right-hander has been with Triple-A Gwinnett since 2009 and has a 3.78 ERA with 7.5 K/9 and 2.6 BB/9 in 97 starts.
