Braves Offering Jo-Jo Reyes, Yunel Escobar For Arroyo

UPDATE: John Fay says the Braves are also offering Yunel Escobar.  This could get done.  And finally allow Kelly Johnson to play every day again.

The Braves are making a push to get one of the better starting pitchers available.  They’re willing to give up pitching prospect Jo-Jo Reyes to get Bronson Arroyo.  My guess is that Reyes alone would not be enough; the Braves might have to dip into the farm system and pull out another prospect.   

If you’re a Braves fan, you’re really have to admire John Schuerholz’s willingness to go for broke.  Maybe he’s found a market inefficiency in teams overvaluing prospects.
