As the trading deadline nears, teams are inquiring about the likes of Hunter Cervenka, Dario Alvarez and Ian Krol, according to Ken Rosenthal.
“Other Braves who could be on the move: potential free agents such as infielder Gordon Beckham and outfielder Jeff Francouer and right-handed reliever Jim Johnson,” Rosenthal reports.
Fine by me. Hope we can add Markakis to the list — the Royals are reportedly interested but the Braves would have to settle for very little.
I’m fine with trading one of Cervenka, Alvarez and Krol, but only if you get a bat. You’re probably not going to get much of one. They come cheap, and they’ve pitched well, but the sample size is ever so small. This time around, Coppy’s best moves may be the ones he doesn’t make.
