Braves acquire Bourn in 5-player deal
Even though the Braves held on to their top prospects, Houston was able to land three pitchers who all have a strong chance to make it to the big leagues, according to Mills.
“It’s kind of exciting the guys we got back,” he said. “We’ve got some pretty talented players coming this way.”
The Astros were playing in Milwaukee, but Bourn never made it to Miller Field. Instead, he caught a flight to Atlanta and was set to meet his new team at the airport, joining them on a team charter to Washington for a series that begins Monday.
Wren held a few more talks, gauging the possibility of landing another hitter and perhaps a right-handed reliever. But there were no serious offers before the 4 p.m. EDT deadline to complete non-waiver trades.
As the deadline passed, Wren wasn’t even on the phone in his box behind home plate.
“We were just watching the game,” he said.
