Cuban prospect Hector Olivera is still searching for his first hit since he was acquired by the Atlanta Braves at the trade deadline.

Olivera has played in a combined four games and is hitless in 11 at-bats. He is 0-for-6 with a pair of walks and a run scored since joining Class A Rome on Sunday.

The 30-year-old Olivera batted .387 in seven games for the Los Angeles Dodgers' Triple-A affiliate at Oklahoma City before sustaining a hamstring injury on July 13 that would sideline him for one month.

Olivera was the subject of a bidding war in the offseason. The Dodgers wound up signing him to a six-year, $62 million contract that included a $28 million signing bonus.
