Angels Acquire Infielder From the Braves in an Early Season Trade

The Atlanta Braves announced yesterday that infielder Luis Guillorme was traded to the Los Angeles Angels. In exchange, the Angels sent a player to be named later for Guillorme. To make room on the roster, the Angels transferred third baseman Anthony Rendon to the 60-day IL.


The 29-year-old Guillorme was not tendered by the Mets in November, but he signed a one-year, $1.1MM contract with the Braves in early January. Guillorme was a tenth-round selection by New York in the 2013 draft. He made his major league debut in 2018, but his pandemic-shortened 2020 season was the only one in which he saw much playing time.


Luis Guillorme is in his seventh season as an MLB player. This season was the first time that he was on a different team than the Mets. Guillorme has a .258 career batting average with a total of 51 home runs in his career.


The versatility of Luis Guillorme is a huge reason why a lot of teams would take a chance on him. He can play all around the infield at a solid level. It’ll be interesting to see how the Angels use him once Guillorme starts to play with his new club.
