CHICAGO -- The contending Atlanta Braves bolstered their bench and bullpen on Thursday, acquiring utilityman Emilio Bonifacio and left-hander James Russell in a trade with the Chicago Cubs. PJ Tucker Jersey . The Braves also got cash back from the Cubs in exchange for catching prospect Victor Caratini. Bonifacio and Russell did not play in the Cubs 3-1 win over Colorado on Thursday afternoon. "These are two pieces that we really like," Atlanta GM Frank Wren said on a conference call. "In Bonifacio, we got a really versatile bench player who can do a lot of things well. In Russells case, its another veteran bullpen arm." Russell was in the home bullpen at Wrigley Field when the trade was made. He hugged several of his teammates and coaches -- and slapped hands with a few fans -- as he exited while the game was going on. "Its kind of hard to wrap your head around it," Russell said. "Its obviously a shock. I knew things were gonna happen. Theres really nothing you can do to prepare yourself for this. Its still kind of weird. I dont know how to feel. Theres a lot of excitement, a lot of mixed emotions." The 29-year-old Bonifacio hit .279 with 14 steals in 69 games for the Cubs this season. He previously played for Atlanta manager Fredi Gonzalez when they were both with the Marlins. "Hes a guy who gives you a lot of versatility. You can play him anywhere on the field," Gonzalez said in Los Angeles. "You can bring him off the bench or start him if the matchup is right. Hes a nice National League player." The 28-year-old Russell is 0-2 with one save and a 3.51 ERA in 44 games. "Hes not your traditional left-handed reliever," Gonzalez said. "You can let him run through some right-handers. Hes durable." Atlanta is in the chase for the NL East title, and the Cubs are last in the NL Central. The 20-year-old Caratini was selected by the Braves in the second round of the 2013 draft. He hit .279 with five homers and 42 RBIs in 87 games with Class A Rome this season. "Hes a guy we liked in the draft a lot," Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer. "Weve said it all along, catching is a weakness in our system and we dont have enough of it." Tracy McGrady Jersey . Fielder has been out with a herniated disk in his neck, and surgery was recommended after a follow-up exam and another scan Thursday with Dr. Nene Jersey . The victory strengthened Liverpools position in the top four after Tottenham lost 1-0 at Norwich in the days late kickoff, cutting the north London club six points adrift of fourth place and the final Champions League slot for next season. http://www.therocketsofficial.com/Authentic-Hakeem-Olajuwon-Rockets-Jersey/ . -- Claudio Bieler hadnt scored since early September, and not from the run of play since mid-July.Each week, well take a look at some top performers from the CFL, with an eye to looking ahead to some matchups that could be favourable for TSN Fantasy Football, CFL Edition, presented by Joseph Abboud. Here are some of the best from Week Six and players to watch for Week Seven: TOP PERFORMERS Nic Grigsby, RB, Winnipeg (119 YDS, 2 TD, 16 touches at Hamilton) - Grigsby is taking advantage of his first regular role in the CFL and went for at least 100 yards from scrimmage for the fourth time in six games this season. His speed is making a difference for a Blue Bombers attack that is having its most success through the air, but Grigsby is versatile enough to contribute both as a runner and receiver. Andrew Harris, RB, B.C. (143 YDS, 1 TD, 20 touches vs. Calgary) - Just a little more of the same-old, same-old for the leagues leading rusher who has 381 rushing yards and 722 yards from scrimmage in six games. An average game, this season, is a little over 120 yards for Harris, who had 1830 yards from scrimmage (101.7 per game) in his career-best 2012 season. Steve Slaton, RB, Toronto (100 YDS, 2 TD, 18 touches vs. Montreal) - The former NFLer, who had 1659 yards from scrimmage for the Houston Texans in 2008 but hasnt played since 2011, Slaton saw his second game action of the season for the Double Blue and caught a couple of scoring passes from Ricky Ray in the Argos romp over the Alouettes. PLAYERS TO WATCH IN WEEK SEVEN Martel Mallett, RB, Calgary - One week after looking to Jock Sandeers as a beneficiary with Jon Cornish out of the lineup, the Stamps had to look to Mallett more once Sanders took a hard hit against the Lions. Trevor Ariza Jersey. . Mallett gained 175 yards on 20 touches against B.C., his first CFL action since 2009, when he gained 1,582 yards from scrimmage along with eight touchdowns when he played for British Columbia. With that kind of performance, might as well look to Mallett at home against the expansion Redblacks this week. Clarence Denmark, SB, Winnipeg - As the Bombers, with the leagues second-best passing attack (280.2 yards per game), take on the Riders, who have the leagues second-worst pass defence (267.6 yards allowed per game), it makes sense to check out their receiving corps. With top target Nick Moore out of the lineup, why not check in on Denmark, who ranks second on the Bombers (and fifth in the league) with 308 receiving yards? Courtney Taylor, SB, British Columbia - Third-year CFLer who played a little with the Seattle Seahawks in 2007 and 2008, Taylor is a big target who hasnt had a monster game yet this season, but does ranks sixth in the league with 305 receiving yards after going over 60 yards in three straight games. A home date against a Hamilton defence that surrendered 361 passing yards to Winnipeg last week seems like a decent matchup for Taylor.
