Braves Pursued Jamey Carroll, Seek Infield Depth

The Braves pursued Jamey Carroll, but the Dodgers have said they're holding onto the infielder, according to MLB.com's Mark Bowman (Twitter links). However, Atlanta GM Frank Wren says he could still address one area of need tonight. According to David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Braves continue to pursue middle infield depth (Twitter link).

The Braves, who acquired outfielder Matt Diaz from Pittsburgh today, added corner infielder Wes Helms, two weeks ago. Carroll, 37, has a .289/.358/.347 line in 446 plate appearances for the Dodgers. He has played second and short this year and has MLB experience at third and in the outfield.

Carroll would be a perfect fit.  Im sure the braves can et it done.  No more Lugo!

IMO bad move from the Dodgers. Although we’ve been on fire lately, we wont make the playoff’s. Its time to let Carrol walk and make it on to a contending club and pick up some prospects. Ned you sir are an idiot.

Anyone to replace Lugo is fine with me.  Carroll could have even replaced Alex Gonzalez as the full time starter at short.
