Enemy Report: Braves get Justin Upton from D-Backs

The Braves acquired Justin Upton from the D-backs on Thursday in exchange for five players, including Martin Prado.

The Braves received Upton and Chris Johnson in exchange for Prado, shortstop prospect Nick Ahmed, Class A infielder Brandon Drury and right-handed pitchers Randall Delgado and Zeke Spruill.

With this trade, Braves general manager Frank Wren provides his club arguably the game’s best outfield. Earlier in the offseason, Wren signed Justin Upton’s older brother, B.J. Upton, to a five-year, $75.25 million contract. Atlanta's projected outfield over at least the next three seasons will consist of Jason Heyward and the two Upton brothers.

To complete this trade, Wren had to part ways with Prado, who is one of the Braves’ most popular players among his teammates and the fans. But he was able to acquire Upton without giving up either of his top two pitching prospects, Julio Teheran or J.R. Graham.

NL Wild Card Alert: Braves land CF Michael Bourn from Astros

Braves GM made a splash today by acquiring center fielder Michael Bourn and cash from the Astros for center fielder Jordan Schafer, southpaw Double-A starter Brett Oberholtzer, righty Double-A starter Paul Clemens, and righty Triple-A reliever Juan Abreu. The Astros announced the deal via press release.

None of the three pitchers are top 50 prospects, but they did rank ninth, 26th, and 27th respectively for the Braves on Baseball America's preseason rankings, and the team has a highly-regarded farm system. Oberholtzer, 22, ranked ninth and is seen as a potential third or fourth starter in the big leagues. Clemens and Abreu both have big upside and impressive fastballs.

Braves flirted with the idea of making a trade for Carlos Beltran , but they were not serious about trading top prospects for him.

The Astros on the other hand have one of the worst minor-league organizations in terms of depth and this could help replenish their system

Chipper Jones does not think Carlos Beltran Helps the Braves

With the looming deadline comes speculation that the Braves might deal for a right-handed bat or a reliever.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution,  Mets nemesis Chipper Jones said he sees the Braves acquiring bullpen help. But he is just fine with the everyday lineup as is.

"I don't have a problem standing pat," Jones said. "I think we have a really good ballclub.Obviously any team would love an injection of new blood, especially top-notch quality. To be honest, I don't see where we are going to go out and better the ballclub everyday lineup-wise. You say what you want about the Carlos Beltrans and the Hunter Pences and the Ryan Ludwicks, people like that, but everybody in our lineup contributes to our success each and every day."
Is he trying to say he does not want a Met on the team??  LOL

Rumor Mill: Some Prospects the Mets might be looking at to get the deal done for Beltran

The Mets are in the hunt for the perfect solution for Carlos Beltran. Where he ends up? Who Knows,  but to the best of my knowledge of all the data I compiled from all the articles I have posted I have come up with this:

So with that, the Mets Front Runners for Beltran are Giants, Phillies, Braves (Based on all articles and rumors reports).

Braves Trade For Uggla

According to Jerry Crasnick of ESPN , the Atlanta Braves acquired All-Star second baseman Dan Uggla from the Florida Marlins on Tuesday in a trade for utility man Omar Infante and pitcher Mike Dunn, a league source told

Uggla, 30, has 154 home runs in five seasons with Florida. He's a three-time All-Star and just won his first career Silver Slugger award.

Uggla is expected to play second base for Atlanta. His arrival frees up Martin Prado to share time at first base with rookie Freddie Freeman, provides insurance for Chipper Jones at third, and also log some at-bats in left field.

Infante was a first-time All-Star who hit a career-high .321 with eight homers and 47 RBIs. Dunn was 2-0 with a 1.89 ERA in 25 games in his rookie season.

The Uggla trade continues a busy offseason for the Marlins, who dealt outfielder Cameron Maybin to San Diego and sent pitcher Andrew Miller to Boston last week.
