Trade 2: Braves snag Dotel from K.C.

    ATLANTA — The Atlanta Braves made another trade to bolster their bullpen, getting Kansas City reliever Octavio Dotel on Tuesday for pitcher Kyle Davies.
    The Braves, in contention for the NL East title and in the middle of the wild-card race, made the deal shortly before the 4 p.m. EDT deadline for making trades without waivers.
    The acquisition of Dotel, a hard-throwing righty who has 11 saves this season, followed the Braves’ trade for lefty Ron Mahay. Atlanta got Mahay as part of a seven-player trade with Texas involving first baseman Mark Teixeira.
    The 31-year-old Dotel is 2-1 with a 3.91 ERA and 11 saves in 14 chances this season. Davies, a 23-year-old righty, was 4-8 with a 5.76 ERA for Atlanta.
    Davies spent most of the season in Atlanta’s rotation before being demoted to Triple-A Richmond on July 19.
