Bullpen help is on the way.

MLB: Boston Red Sox at Baltimore Orioles Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Braves are close to gaining some bullpen help with the acquisition of reliever Brad Brach from the Baltimore Orioles. The Baltimore Sun’s Eduardo Encina reports that an agreement is in place pending a physical.

The Braves are sending the Orioles some international slot pool money in exchange for Brach.

Brach has appeared in 42 games for Baltimore this season and has a 4.85 ERA in 39 innings. He has dealt with a high .371 BABIP this season so the hope is that a change of scenery may change his fortune.

Update - The deal is done and has been announced.
