Braves Offseason 2012
The Braves must feel like their left field options are running out, as reports indicate they have asked the Los Angeles Dodgers about Dee Gordon. Gordon would certainly aid Atlanta's youth movement, but the issue is that he plays shortstop.
The Braves have a slew of pitchers fighting for the No. 5 spot in the rotation, so a pair of young arms are on the trading block...if the price is right.
Despite a vacancy in center field created by Michael Bourn's free agency, the Braves have other issues that likely preclude them from making a serious play for Hamilton. The slugger reportedly wants seven years at $25 million per year to sign.
The Atlanta Braves and Jordan Schafer have reunited after the team claimed the center fielder off waivers from the Houston Astros on Thursday.
