Braves Acquire Teixiera

Jarrod Saltalamacchia was one of the top prospects in the Braves organization and was the pride of the M-Braves.

Now the longest name in Major League Baseball will have to be sewn on the back of a Texas Rangers jersey.

Salty is headed to the Lone Star state in return for first baseman Mark Teixeira.

Teixeira is hitting .297 this season with 13 home runs and 49 RBI.

He is expected to bolster the middle of the order by adding another left-handed power hitter to the lineup.
