The Atlanta Braves reacquired infielder Ehire Adrianza from the Washington Nationals on Monday in exchange for minor league outfielder Trey Harris.

The Braves also designated veteran second baseman Robinson Cano for assignment.

Adrianza, 32, won the World Series with the Braves last season before signing with the Nationals in free agency in March.

He batted .179 with seven RBIs in 31 games with Washington. He’s a career .240 hitter with 21 homers and 149 RBIs in 605 games with the San Francisco Giants (2013-16), Minnesota Twins (2017-20), Braves (2021) and Nats.

Cano, 39, joined Atlanta on July 10 after brief stints this season with the New York Mets and San Diego Padres. He batted .154 (4-for-26) with a double in nine games for the Braves.

An eight-time All-Star, Cano is a career .301 hitter with 335 homers and 1,306 RBIs in 2,267 games over 17 seasons with the New York Yankees (2005-13), Seattle Mariners (2014-18), Mets (2019-20, 2022), Padres and Braves.

Harris, 26, was drafted in the 32nd round by Atlanta in 2018. He batted .238 with two homes and 16 RBIs over 59 games this season at Double-A Mississippi.
