"Braves purchased the contract of INF Yunel Escobar from Triple-A Richmond.
He's up now, though he's not expected to be available until Saturday. Escobar, 24, was hitting .333/.379/.456 with two homers and seven steals in 180 at-bats in Triple-A. His ability to hit for average could carry over to the majors, but he's not likely to contribute much elsewhere. Expect him to get the majority of the starts at third until Chipper Jones returns." rotoworld.com
This move is for Chipper going on the DL but I think he might be he has a lot of talent and might even be trade bait for a team looking for a SS or 2B for the future.
