Check out the latest blog post from David O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. A few details:
- Will Ohman is unable to comment on the state of his negotiations, leading O’Brien to write, "it wouldn’t surprise me if [the Braves] sign Ohman soon." There is some debate over whether the Phillies are still in on Ohman, while the Mets may be looking to sign him at a bargain price.
- O’Brien hasn’t had any indications that an outfield acquisition is brewing for the Braves, but he admits that can change quickly. The possible targets are assumed to be Xavier Nady, Nick Swisher, and Bobby Abreu.
- O’Brien believes Tom Glavine will pitch this year, and that the Braves will offer him a Major League contract. Ken Rosenthal examined the situation last night, suggesting that Glavine seeks $2-3MM guaranteed with a chance to earn $6MM or so.
