The Atlanta Braves acquired outfielders Adam Duvall and Eddie Rosario in separate deals ahead of Friday's trade deadline.

The Braves traded catcher Alex Jackson to the Miami Marlins to bring back Duvall and sent infielder Pablo Sandoval to the Cleveland Indians in exchange for Rosario and cash considerations.

Duvall, 32, entered Friday tied for seventh in the National League with 22 home runs and ranked fifth with 68 RBIs. He is batting .229 with 105 strikeouts in 90 games this season.

Jackson, 25, hit .070 (3-for-43) in 19 games with the Braves over the past three seasons. He was drafted sixth overall by the Seattle Mariners in 2014.

Rosario, 29, is hitting .254 with seven homers and 46 RBIs in 78 games this season with Cleveland. He landed on the 10-day injured list with a right abdominal strain on July 6 and has missed the Indians' past 17 games.

Rosario is a .275 career hitter with 126 home runs and 434 RBIs in 775 games with the Minnesota Twins (2015-20) and Cleveland.

Sandoval, 34, batted .178 with four homers and 11 RBIs in 69 games this season for Atlanta.

A two-time All-Star and three-time World Series champion with San Francisco, Sandoval owns a .278 career batting average with 153 homers and 639 RBIs in 1,380 games with the Giants (2008-14, 2017-20), Boston Red Sox (2015-17) and Braves.
