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.
The Orioles “Saved by the Bell” re-creation squad just took a major hit.
I like his OBP. He’s not starter material obviously but outfield depth is a good thing
His sister, Linda, has a better shot at making the roster.
Gwinnett is going to need outfield depth soon!
