Braves reportedly still involved in 'multiple' trade discussions

The Braves are staying busy on the trade market even after the Winter Meetings have ended.

Even though the Winter Meetings are over, the free agent and trade market is still in its infancy for the offseason leading up to the 2013 season. The Atlanta Braves are still doing plenty of talking with other teams, including missing out on a much needed trade, especially with the Michael Bourn's absence in the outfield.

The Braves were reportedly very interested in former Cleveland Indians right fielder and current Cincinnati Reds outfielder Shin Soo-Choo. Although they made a strong push for the left-handed hitter, the Braves reportedly thought the price was too high for a player who will hit free agency next season.

The Braves have flipped Tommy Hanson for Jordan Walden already this offseason, but they've still got their sights set on a couple more additions. The team is said to be interested in Dexter Fowler and Emilio Bonifacio. Fowler plays center field exclusively, while Bonifacio has spent time at third base, shortstop and in the outfield. Martin Prado's ability to play virtually any where does give the Braves some flexibility in terms of who they sign this offseason.
