Braves Looking For Outfield, Infield Depth

Earlier today, the Braves announced that Chipper Jones will undergo surgery on his left knee and is expected to be sidelined approximately three weeks.  General Manager Frank Wren said that he was looking to acquire backup outfield help even before the injury and will continue to do so, tweets David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

While Johnny Damon remains unsigned, it's unclear how much interest the Braves have in the outfielder, O'Brien tweets.  Meanwhile, the Braves are looking for more infield depth as well, tweets Jayson Stark of ESPN.com.  However, Stark notes that Jack Wilson could be back in action as soon as Sunday.
