Braves Rumors: Atlanta Interested in Ross, Victorino, Upton

Even after signing center fielder B.J. Upton this week, the Atlanta Braves are interested in several free agent outfielders, including Ryan Ludwick, Cody Ross and Shane Victorino, and the club shouldn’t be entirely ruled out when it comes to trading for Justin Upton of the Arizona Diamondbacks, reports David O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The Braves signed Upton to a five-year, $75 million contract to become their long-term option in center field. Despite the signing, Atlanta is still in the market for a corner outfielder and they’re targeted several of the market’s top options.

Ross is interested in a three-year contract this winter, while Ludwick and Victorino may have to settle for shorter-term deals considering their age.

There has been some talk of the Braves filling two-thirds of its outfield with Upton’s. B.J. and Justin’s father would be a fan of the brothers uniting in Atlanta, and O’Brien says the Braves haven’t entirely ruled out the idea either.

  1. I'm a fan of the Braves but I would love for them to have resign Broune back for centerfield

    1. Not a big fan of the B.J. Upton signing myself. Wonder where Bourn will land.
