ATLANTA -

The Atlanta Braves announced a two-player trade Monday that sends third baseman Juan Francisco to the Milwaukee Brewers in exchange for minor league left-handed pitcher Tom Keeling. 

Keeling will be assigned to Double-A Mississippi.  He was drafted by the Brewers in the 18th round of the 2010 free agent draft.  In over 17 relief appearances with Double-A Huntsville this season, he struck out 19 batters in 17 innings pitched. 

The Braves acquired Francisco from Cincinnati in 2012.  He batted .237 and went 71-for-300 in over 128 games with the Braves.
