While the Braves try to fill the hole at shortstop, a potential call-up won't happen Friday as the Braves look for possible trade opportunities, according to various reports.
#Braves are planning to hold off on SS roster move for a day, presumably still trying to work a deal— David O'Brien (@ajcbraves) July 13, 2012
Braves opted not to call up Josh Wilson. Indicates they hope to make a deal for a stopgap SS soon.— Mark Bowman (@mlbbowman) July 13, 2012
Andrelton Simmons will miss at least a month with a broken hand. On Thursday, manager Fredi Gonzalez said a call-up was possible on Friday, with Tyler Pastornicky or veteran Josh Wilson as the likely options. Pastornicky was Atlanta's starting shortstop to begin the season.
But Atlanta will hold off on a move while trade opportunities continue to be explored.
