Braves get INF-OF Bonifacio, LHP Russell from Cubs

CHICAGO (AP) The contending Atlanta Braves have acquired infielder-outfielder Emilio Bonifacio and left-handed reliever James Russell from the Chicago Cubs for catching prospect Victor Caratini.

The Braves also got cash from the Cubs in Thursday's trade. Neither Bonifacio nor Russell played in the Cubs' 3-1 win over Colorado earlier in the day.

Russell was in the Cubs bullpen when the trade was made. He hugged several of his teammates and coaches - and slapped hands with a few fans - as he exited while the game was going on.
