Braves willing to deal Jurrjens and Prado?
We were surprised to see a report in the MLB Blogs that the Braves are listening to offers for Jair Jurrjens and Martin Prado. Really? That’s two of their best players.

But, yes, the Royals are expected to be showing interest in Jurrjens, who had a 2.96 ERA last year, but also has questions regarding his right knee. Sounds perfect for the Royals!
And Prado? Career .293 hitter who can play a variety of defensive positions. Frank Wren better get a decent amount back if he’s moving Prado. This isn’t a team that can afford to lose any offense.
Apparently, the Braves are looking to move some people around so they can get a shortstop. It would have to be Jimmy Rollins or Jose Reyes if they are willing to part with talents like this.
