Three-team trade gives Fish OF help
MIAMI – The Miami Marlins traded for an outfield bat on Wednesday night when they landed Jeff Francoeur in a three-team trade with the Braves and Rangers.
The Marlins gave up minor league catcher Matt Foley to the Atlanta Braves and international signing slots #37 and #97 to the Rangers.
Texas gave minor league infielder Dylan Moore to the Braves and will get international signing slot #93 from Atlanta.
