Braves acquire veteran RHP Garcia

The SportsXchange

The Atlanta Braves acquired veteran right-handed pitcher Freddy Garcia from the Baltimore Orioles for cash considerations.

Garcia, who has been pitching for the Orioles' Class AAA affiliate in Norfolk, Va., will join the Braves' Class AAA team in Gwinnett, Ga.

Garcia could get a callup soon since Tim Hudson is done for the season and Brandon Beachy could also go on the disabled list.

Garcia, 36, was demoted to the minors in June after he went 3-5 with a 5.77 ERA in 53 innings for the Orioles. For Norfolk, he has a 2.84 ERA with 61 strikeouts and 15 walks in 13 starts.

For his career, Garcia is 155-106 with a 4.18 ERA.
