Braves Have Interest In Free Agent Nate Schierholtz

New, 178 comments

From a tweet by AJC writer David O'Brien, the Atlanta Braves apparently have interest in free agent outfielder Nate Schierholtz. He played for the Phillies and Giants last season as a right fielder, center fielder, and pinch hitter. Schierholtz would pair with Reed Johnson (should he re-sign) to form a potent lefty-righty pinch-hit tandem. Schierholtz has a career .305 pinch-hit average though he's hit lefties and righties about the same.

UPDATE 9:30pm:

Schierholtz has apparently agreed to a one year deal with the Cubs. So scratch him off the list.
