Braves might remain quiet

The Braves will spend the next week searching for ways to upgrade their bullpen and bench.  But with essentially no financial flexibility and limited attractive options, there is a chance they will remain quiet through the July 31 Trade Deadline.

Like with another of other clubs, Red Sox left-hander Andrew Miller has been on the Braves’ radar.  There has even been some discussion about the Cubs’ southpaw Wesley Wright.  But some members of the Braves’ organization believe their best option to add a left-handed reliever might come in the form of a rejuvenated and improved Luis Avilan, who was sent to Triple-A Gwinnett this past weekend with the hope that he will regain the form he possessed last year.

If the Braves do land a reliever or bench player, they will likely have to strike a deal with which they do not incur any cost for this season.  They went well over their budget when they gave Ervin Santana a $14.1 million in March.

They can assure them selfs of the playoff and perhaps the World Series with a couple of players. Would suggest David Price, and Marlon Byrd. No Mr Wren wants to be in a position of saying wait till next year. Heard that enought.
