2012 MLB Winter Meetings: Trade prices too steep for Braves

Ralph Freso

The Atlanta Braves have been actively looking to add players during the Winter Meetings, but they haven't found a deal they've liked yet.

Like every other team in the league, the Atlanta Braves are exploring their options at the 2012 Winter Meetings. They would like to add a left fielder as well as some bench players, but no deals have come to fruition. General manager Frank Wren said Wednesday that some teams' asking prices were just too steep for the Braves to work with.

"[Tuesday] night we started exchanging names more and getting information, and some of the ‘asks’ were beyond what we were comfortable doing," Wren said. "So we crossed some conversations off the list."

So the Braves may leave the Winter Meetings without any additions to their roster; the meetings end Thursday at the conclusion of the Rule 5 draft.

Atlanta reportedly looked into deals for Justin Upton, Shin-Soo Choo and Alex Gordon, among others. Upton is rumored to be at the center of a potential four-team trade between Arizona, Texas, Tampa Bay and Cleveland.
