The AJC is reporting it.
Braves first baseman Adam LaRoche has been traded to the Pittsburgh Pirates for left-handed closer Mike Gonzalez and another player, a Pirates team official confirmed Wednesday.
Neither team would comment publicly on the deal, which will be finalized after the players pass physicals. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette also reported the trade on its website. The addition of Gonzalez, a hard thrower who converted 24 of 24 save opportunities for the Pirates last season, would give the Braves one the best bullpens in the major leagues.
More to come about this over the next day or so when I can get to it.
