Braves Acquire McLouth

The Atlanta Braves have MLB&hl=265436&rwr=1">acquired outfielder Nate McLouth from the Pirates in exchange for pitchers Charlie Morton and Jeff Locke, and outfielder Gorkys Hernandez.

This is a solid move for both clubs, but especially for the Braves. McLouth had a breakout year last season, hitting .276 with 26 home runs in 152 games. McLouth is 27, and should provide the Braves with some much needed support in the middle of their lineup.

The Pirates acquire Charlie Morton, who is 7-2 with a 2.51 ERA in 10 starts this season. He is a 1.05 WHIP.

Locke, 21, is 1-4 with a 5.52 ERA in 10 starts in the Carolina League.
