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.
