Braves Have Not Asked Mariners About Figgins

The Braves, who are considering ways to replace Chipper Jones, have not asked the Mariners about Chone Figgins, according to Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times (Twitter link). The clubs considered a Figgins deal before Chipper's injury, leading up to the July 31st trade deadline. Figgins, 32, would likely clear waivers, since he's hitting just .253/.343/.303 and has over $28MM remaining on his salary.

Baker, Dave Cameron of U.S.S. Mariner and MLBTR all considered possible deals that would send Figgins to Atlanta. Click here to predict how the Braves will replace Chipper.
