Braves, Dodgers swap third basemen

Earlier this week, the Braves and Dodgers completed a six-player trade, with Juan Uribe heading to Atlanta and fellow third baseman Alberto Callaspo headed to Hollywood.

The Atlanta Braves have dealt infielder Alberto Callaspo, left-handed pitchers Eric Stults and Ian Thomas, and right-handed pitcher Juan Jaime to the Los Angeles Dodgers in exchange for infielder Juan Uribe and right-handed pitcher Chris Withrow. While the Mets were not involved in this deal, it involves a division rival nonetheless.

This season, Callaspo is hitting .206/.293/.252 with one home run and eight runs batted in, while Uribe is hitting .247/.287/.309 with  one home run and six runs batted in.

Stults, who is returning to the Dodgers after breaking in with them in 2006, has a 1-5 record, to go along with a very poor 5.85 ERA, 1.28 WHIP, and 31 strikeouts. The rookie Thomas has pitched sparingly, but has posted a 3.38 ERA, 1.69 WHIP, and five strikeouts.

Withrow has been out for the entire 2015 season thus far, and there is a good chance he will miss the remainder of the season as well.

Jaime has also been used very sparingly this season. He has posted a 6.75 with a single strikeout.
