Braves acquire Matt Joyce – MLB Trade Rumors



Per Kerry Crowley of San Jose Mercury News Braves has acquired outfielder Matt Joyce from Giants for cash consideration. It will be the third team this week for the 34-year-old Joyce, who was released Tuesday by Cleveland after the team informed him he would not crack the opening day.

Joyce enjoys a late career renaissance in 2016 with Pittsburgh, slashing .242 / .403 / .463 (136 wRC +), and again the following season in Oakland, where his 2.7 fWAR was a best career. He dropped back to the ground last season, however, sent a 89 WRC + and only 0.2 fWAR in a 246 record appearances, the vast majority of which came against right-handed pitching.

The left-handed Joyce has long exhibited one of the game's most pronounced left / right splitter, slashing a career .250 / .351

/ .451 (121 wRC +) against righties, versus just .184 / .267 /. 306 (61 wRC +) against the same side arms. Despite the declining year in 18, Joyce's 35% hard hit one of the highest of his career, and he maintained his ever-robust rides, checking in at 14.2% to finish the season.

He will serve as an ideal corner-depth depth for Atlanta, and maybe even an upgrade over established Nick Markakis in the right field (Steamer projects the two with an identical 102 wRC +). Despite trading for the thriving Adam Duvall late in the season, Atlanta was clearly determined by experienced corner settings, so the Joyce signature seems well-conscious.
