Braves acquire reliever Swarzak from Mariners

The Braves have added veteran help for their patchwork bullpen by acquiring right-hander Anthony Swarzak from Seattle for left-hander Jesse Biddle and right-hander Arodys Vizcaino.

This Just In  

The Atlanta Braves today acquired RHP Anthony Swarzak and cash considerations from the Seattle Mariners in exchange for RHP Arodys Vizcaíno and LHP Jesse Biddle. Swarzak, 33, is 2-2 with a 5.27 ERA (8 ER/13.2 IP), three saves, and six home runs allowed in 15 games out of the Mariners bullpen this season, his first with the club. The 6-foot-4, 215-pound native of Fort Lauderdale, FL, joined the Mariners in a seven-player trade that sent Robinson Canó and Edwin Díaz to New York (NL) last December. He signed a two-year, $14-million contract with the Mets on December 15, 2017.
