Braves trade fired general manager Frank Wren’s son

Atlanta has now cleansed its entire organization of all things Wren.

First the Braves fired Frank Wren as general manager. Then they fired his brother, Jeff Wren, from his job as a scout and special assistant. And now they’ve traded his son, minor leaguer Kyle Wren, to the Brewers in exchange for minor leaguer Zach Quintana.

While not considered a top prospect, Kyle Wren is a 23-year-old center fielder who hit .290 with 46 steals in 132 games between high Single-A and Double-A this season. He has two career homers in 185 games, but the former eighth-round pick could have a future as a backup outfielder.
