The Texas Rangers have made a minor deal, sending A-ball infielder Dylan Moore to the Atlanta Braves as part of a three way trade that has Jeff Francoeur going to the Marlins and international slot bonus money going to Texas.

Moore, 24, was a 7th round pick out of the University of Central Florida in 2015.  He has split the season between low-A Hickory and high-A High Desert.  He's a guy in the organizational depth category.
