Braves Rumors: Vazquez, Escobar

Dave O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution says the Braves could deal Javier Vazquez or Yunel Escobar this month. Here are the details:

  • Bobby Cox and Frank Wren were deep in discussion for over an hour yesterday, so O'Brien has no doubt "they're seriously trying to make a move." Yesterday, O'Brien reported that the Braves planned to wait before making any deals.
  • The Braves don't want to trade Javier Vazquez, but realize he could help them acquire an impact player, presumably a bat.  
  • Despite his affordable contract, Yunel Escobar is a "legit possibility to be moved," from what O'Brien hears.
