Braves Rumors: Mike Gonzalez, Ohman, Teixeira

Despite recent speculation about Mike Gonzalez's availability, MLB.com's Mark Bowman says the Braves reliever is not going anywhere.  Bowman talked to a team official who seemed adamant about keeping Gonzalez.  That is no surprise, since Gonzalez is under team control for '09 and Rafael Soriano is of questionable health.

Bowman adds that interest has picked up in another Braves lefty reliever, Will Ohman.  The Braves apparently see Ohman as a Type B free agent and want a return better than the supplemental draft pick they could receive by letting him walk.

Similarly, the Braves will keep Mark Teixeira if they can't top the two draft picks they'd receive for him.  The risk there would be if Baltimore signs Teixeira and their first round pick is protected.
