Trade Talk: Braves Looking for a Shortstop?

With Andrelton Simmons out for a while and Jack Wilson hurting his hand last night, the Braves suddenly find themselves in need of another shortstop. Even before Wilson hurt his hand last night, Braves Manager Fredi Gonzalez said on Friday night's pregame radio report that the team is looking both inside and "outside the organization" for a "glove-first shortstop."

Well, Martin Prado is today's starting shortstop and Tyler Pastornicky is back in Atlanta, and rumors has it that Braves are working fast to bring in someone else. Click here to read more...

 

Best first-round draft picks in Braves history

 

It's been a month since the Braves chose Lucas Sims, a hard-throwing right-handed pitcher out of Snellville, with the 21st pick of the first round in this year's amateur baseball draft. In his professional debut June 26th, he pitched two perfect innings with three strikeouts for the Gulf Coast League Braves.

There's something about the first round that begs for comparisons. It's still too early to tell about Sims; it's arguably still too early to tell about Mike Minor and even Jason Heyward.  Still, I looked at the Braves' first-round draft history and chose a top five, and added some other interesting observations.
