Braves Trade Rumors 2011: Martin Prado Not Being Shopped, Says Frank Wren

The Atlanta Braves have been at the forefront of many offseason trade rumors with most either involving pitcher Jair Jurrjens or leftfielder/third baseman Martin Prado. On Saturday Braves general manager Frank Wren talked to reporters and denied reports that he was looking to trade Prado

#Braves GM Wren: "Martin Prado is a solid player and a part of our team for almost five years. We're not out looking to trade good players."

Prado has been rumored as a potential target  for teams like the Colorado Rockies and the Detroit Tigers. Prado hit over .300 from 2008-2010 but slumped to a .260 average last season. He still finished with 13 home runs and 57 RBIs while splitting time between left field and third base last season. If not an everyday starter, Prado would be extremely valuable as a solid bat off the bench that can play several positions in the field.
