Braves Offseason 2012: GM meetings begin Wednesday

Atlanta may be on the move, just like it was two years ago, at the GM meetings.

The annual general managers' meetings begin Wednesday and the Atlanta Braves could be in the action early, just like two years ago.

The meetings will take place in Indian Wells, Calif. Two years ago, the Braves acquired second baseman Dan Uggla at the first round of the GM meetings.

"It's always unlikely something major is going to happen at the GM meetings, because it's usually just too early for the clubs to have gotten all the information they need," Braves GM Frank Wren told the AJC. "You get accustomed to the dance that happens at the GM meetings, where you don't really get to the specifics that you'd like, but you get an additional round of information."

The Braves are trying to acquire a center fielder and a left fielder/third baseman this offseason, according to the AJC.

The Uggla trade was discussed days before the GM meetings. Uggla was acquired from the Florida Marlins for Mike Dunn and Omar Infante on Nov. 16, 2010.

In two years with the Braves, Uggla has batted .227 with 55 home runs and a .750 OPS. He hit 36 home runs in his first year with the Braves, a career high.
