Braves willing to listen on JV, but should they?

Depends on what you could get in return. Venters should net more than a LH pitch-hitter.

I’d be surprised if FW trades him, however. Jordan Walden, who’s held lefties to a .206 BA over his career, is nursing a sore back while EOF has yet to pitch this spring. Both are supposed to be fine, but until they prove it JV ain’t going nowhere.

Keep in mind that EOF is a free agent after this season while JV isn’t eligible for f ree agency until after 2016. If you’re going to trade a left-handed reliever, wouldn’t it make more sense to deal O’Flaherty?

  1. Meh. JV was very hittable last year, especially compared to 2011. I wonder if the brass believes he’s hurt or unable to regain his 2011 form. Sell high?

    The Tigers could use him but I can’t see anyone they have besides Infante who we could use. I can’t find any decent prospects at 3B or SS.
