The Braves have tried to, hahahaha, trade Hector Olivera

Yahoo’s Jeff Passan reports that the Braves have tried to trade Hector Olivera since his arrest for assault and battery earlier this month in Arlington, Virginia.

Good luck with that, boys.

Olivera is on administrative leave and a suspension is likely coming under MLB’s domestic violence policy. And he’s not shown that he’s a good player. Other than that, sure, he’s totally someone a team would give something up to sign. One opposing executive told Passan that he “can’t believe they even asked.”

And you think the Braves actual on-the-field performance is pathetic.
