1981 Phillies trade Bob Walk to the Braves for outfielder Gary Matthews. The team's new center fielder will play outstanding defense along with three solid seasons at the plate for Philadelphia while Atlanta's new right-hander will compile a 12-13 record with a 4.85 ERA during his three-year tenure with the club.
1997 The Indians send Kenny Lofton (.317, 14, 67) and Alan Embree (3-1, 2.79) to the Braves for Marquis Grissom (.262, 10, 57) and David Justice (.337, 30, 88). The deal saves $5.8 million in salaries for Atlanta and helps the team to sign hurlers Greg Maddux ($57.5 million, five-year) and Tom Glavine ($34 million, four-year).
