SHARE BRAVES PICK UP WHITT FROM JAYS

The Atlanta Braves picked up a veteran catcher, sending two minor leaguers to Toronto for Ernie Whitt. Whitt, 37, and outfielder Kevin Batiste went to Atlanta Sunday for Rick Trlicek, a right-hander who pitched at Class A Sumter last season. Whitt hit .262 with 11 home runs and 53 RBIs in 1989 as Toronto won the American League East. In his 11 years with the Blue Jays, Whitt batted .252.
