Braves acquire Matt Kemp, send Hector Olivera to San Diego

ATLANTA (AP) Braves general manager John Coppolella is sick of watching his team plummet to the bottom of the major leagues.

Trading for pricey slugger Matt Kemp might be a good way to send a message to disappointed Atlanta fans.

The Braves acquired Kemp, a two-time All-Star outfielder, and $10.5 million from San Diego for troubled outfielder Hector Olivera on Saturday night.
