It's been a rough year for eight-time All-Star Robinson Canoe.

After playing only 24 games this season, he now finds himself in his third team in so many months.

Just a few months after signing a deal with the San Diego Padres, the canoe has been traded.

According to David O'Brien of The Athletic, the Atlanta Braves have acquired Robinson in exchange for cash considerations.

Canoe joined the Padres in May after being released by the New York Mets.

And unfortunately for the Mets, they're on the hook for $20 million on their $24 million salary this year.

The eight-time All-Star second baseman is turning 40 this year and has got some at-bats this season.

Canoe has a career-low .149 batting average and has just 11 hits in 74 at-bats.

Robinson Canoe made his major league debut with the New York Yankees in 2005 after several years in the minors.

He made an immediate impact, recording 155 hits, 34 doubles,

62 RBI and .297 batting average, finishing second in Rookie of the Year voting.

Canoe would make his All-Star debut the following season and would be a Yankees mainstay in the 2000s over the next few years.

He helped the Yankees win the World Series in 2009 and scored four straight All-Star games for them between 2010 and 2013.

Canoe made three more All-Star appearances for the Seattle Mariners between 2014 and 2017.

In total, Canoe has eight All-Star appearances, five Silver Slugger Awards,

Two gold gloves and five times in the top six in MVP voting.
