Braves acquire LHP Frank Brooks from Dodgers

on .

The TBS crew has just reported that the Braves have claimed 26-year-old LHP Frank Brooks (Cube | ESPN | CBS) off waivers from the Dodgers. Brooks had been designated for assignment earlier this week, leaving the Dodgers 10 days to trade him, release him, or send him outright to the minors. He will likely help to vill the void of left-handed pitching in the Braves bullpen. His minor league stats (viewable on his Baseball Cube page via the "Cube" link above) indicate that he was a successful starter after he was drafted into the Phillies' system, but he has since converted into a rather effective relief pitcher. Lots of games finished, a few saves, lots of strikeouts, few walks. Not much else is known about him yet, but check the comments for this entry for more info later.
