Trade Deadline Trades

The Braves are still contenders in the NL, but with a stretch of games with the Chicago Cubs, LA Dodgers, St. Louis Cardinals and Baltimore Orioles up next, it will be very difficult to stay afloat.

Now that Jason Grilli is out for the year with a left Achilles tendon injury, the chances of the Braves being sellers at the deadline increases (though it hurt not being able to trade Grilli).

As Alan discussed yesterday, the Braves have many options to trade.  With many veterans on the team performing decently, contenders should be calling the Braves.

If this season is a wash, adding more prospects to our top prospect list would be very beneficial.

Trade Options



Kelly Johnson

Jim Johnson

Juan Uribe

Chris Johnson

Christian Bethancourt

Julio Teheran???

I say Teheran because I think it’s possible the Braves shop him.  It’s a slim chance he gets traded and I haven’t seen anything about it, but still think it could happen.
