The Braves have traded shortstop Edgar Renteria to the Tigers for righty starting pitcher Jair Jurrjens and minor league center fielder Gorkys Hernandez. Renteria had a solid season for the Braves last year as he played in 124 games and he was 164 for 494 (.332 avg, .860 OPS) with 87 runs scored, 12 homers, 57 RBIs and 11 stolen bases. The Braves will hand over the starting shortstop job to Yunel Escobar. The 25-year old Escobar was outstanding as a rookie for the Braves as he played in 94 games and he was 104 for 319 (.326 avg, .836 OPS) with 54 runs scored, 5 homers and 28 RBIs. 21 year old righty starter Jair Jurrjens will compete for a job in the rotation in Spring Training which is a big need for the Braves. He started 7 games for the Tigers this year and he was 3-1 with a 4.70 ERA and a 1.14 WHIP. In 30.2 innings with the Tigers he allowed 24 hits, walked 11 batters and whiffed 13. Jurrjens also started 19 games in AA ball and he was 7-5 with a 3.20 ERA and a 1.27 WHIP. Gorkys Hernandez is one of the better center field prospects around but the Tigers were loaded there. The 20-year old Hernandez played in 124 A games and he was 141 for 481 (.293 avg, .735 OPS) with 84 runs scored, 4 homers, 50 RBIs and 54 stolen bases.
