Breaking News: Braves Confirm Depature Of Another Top Superstar

The New York Mets will begin this homestand on Friday and will play their NL East rivals, the Atlanta Braves and Philadelphia Phillies, for five straight games. After a few days off, the team hopes to start a new homestand on a positive note. The Mets, who are currently 18–18, will take on their rivals, the Braves, for a three-game series to start this homestand on the right foot.

There was a little something extra about this series going into it that enthused Mets supporters about these three games against their rivals. That is untrue because the Atlanta Braves have acquired another former Met, who wore orange and blue during his first six years in the Major League Baseball, and have replaced the former Met.

The Braves immediately replace former Met Luis Guillorme with another player after trading for him.
The Atlanta Braves transferred former Met infielder Luis Guillorme to the Los Angeles Angels for cash or a player to be chosen later, a day before he was expected to return to Flushing Queens. This action follows the Angels’ decision to add third baseman Anthony Rendon to the 60-day injured list due to a hamstring issue, which resulted in more injuries.

Favored by Mets supporters for both his long beard and strong defense, Guillorme never quite had the chance in Atlanta. In ten games, he batted just.150 with just 20 at-bats. After Guillorme’s brief stay with the Braves ended, they sought another former Met to take his position.
The Braves acquired former Met infielder Zack Short from the Boston Red Sox in return for monetary considerations, even though Short’s time with the team was not as lengthy as Guillorme’s. Short would most likely replace Guillorme on the team. After making the Opening Day roster, Short joined the Mets to start the season. He appeared in just 10 games and batted just.111 in his nine at-bats.

After J.D. Martinez signed with the Mets, the team DFA’d Short. The infielder was subsequently moved to Boston, where he appeared in just two games before being DFA’d once more. Hence, even if this weekend’s reunion the Mets were hoping for won’t happen, we will still have one because former Met Zack Short is now an Atlanta Brave.
