Braves did NOT offer Prado and JJ for Adam Jones

Mark Bowman reports:

The Braves expressed interest in Adam Jones. But they did not offer Martin Prado and Jair Jurrjens to the Orioles in exchange for the outfielder.

A source with knowledge of the Orioles negotiations disputed a Baltimore Sun report that indicated the Braves were rejected when they offered Prado, Jurrjens and a pitching prospect for Jones.

Good to hear because that would’ve been a crappy trade. Martin has a higher career OPS than Jones (.775 to .756). The Orioles CF has more power and better speed but only 117 walks in his career (which includes four complete seasons).

A multiple-J.J. trade would make more sense: Jurrjens and Prado for J.J. Hardy and Nolan Reimold.
