Braves acquire former All-Star reliever Jiménez from Tigers

SAN DIEGO (AP) The Atlanta Braves traded for former All-Star reliever Joe Jimenez on Wednesday night, sending two minor leaguers to Detroit to help restock a bullpen now minus Kenley Jansen.

The Tigers acquired outfielder Justyn-Henry Malloy and left-hander Jake Higginbotham. The swap at the winter meetings came after Jansen, who led the NL with 41 saves last season, left the NL East champion Braves and got a $32 million, two-year deal with the Boston Red Sox.

Jimenez, who turns 28 next month, was 3-2 with two saves and a 3.49 ERA in 62 games with the Tigers last season, striking out 77 in 56 2/3 innings. The right-hander has spent all six of his seasons in the majors with Detroit and was an All-Star in 2018.
