According to sources, the Braves have traded Jason Grilli to the Toronto Blue Jays for RP Sean Ratcliffe. Ratcliffe was an 18th round pick in the 2013 draft.
Grilli has struggled since recovering from a torn Achilles going 1-2 with 5.29 ERA. The Blue Jays are hopeful he can return to performing the way he was before the injury last year.
Ratcliffe, who hasn’t pitched yet this year, will likely begin his stint with the Braves in rookie ball. In 2015 he went 2-2 with a 3.60 ERA.
Expect this trade to not be the only trade made by the Braves in the next two months.
