Braves Acquire Backup Catcher Wil Nieves From Brewers

The Atlanta Braves have acquired backup catcher Wil Nieves from the Milwaukee Brewers, in exchange for cash considerations. Nieves is a 33-year-old career backup who has played for Washington, San Diego, and the Yankees. He was currently on the Brewers triple-A team.

The Braves likely acquired him as backup depth behind David Ross and J.C. Boscan, and he will probably be assigned to triple-A, though the Braves may prefer a guy like Nieves with more Major League backup experience to a guy like Boscan. Nothing to get too excited about.
