Braves Leaning Toward Internal Options In OF

ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick talked to Braves GM Frank Wren, who says the Braves are more likely to try their young outfielders than acquire a veteran outfielder after failing to sign Ken Griffey Jr.

Crasnick adds that the Braves "aren’t very excited" about Garret Anderson and have little to no interest in Jim Edmonds and Luis Gonzalez.  He says the salaries of Xavier Nady or Nick Swisher might be prohibitive.  Pure speculation on my part – the Braves could definitely afford Luke Scott if he’s available for trade.
