Braves trade minor league outfielder Ryan LaMarre to Twins for cash

Gwinnett outfielder will be added to Minnesota’s 40-man roster

MLB: MAR 19 Spring Training - Nationals at Braves

The Atlanta Braves have traded minor-league outfielder Ryan LaMarre to the Minnesota Twins according to a report by The Athletic’s Dan Hayes. LaMarre spent the entire season at Triple-A Gwinnett where he hit .311/.380/.477 with nine home runs in 126 games.

LaMarre will be added to the Twins’ 40-man roster taking the spot of Michael Pineda who was given a 60-game suspension earlier this week. He however, will not be eligible for the postseason.

LaMarre was eligible to be traded because he signed a minor-league contract. The July 31 trade deadline applies only to players with major-league contracts.
