With the Fourth of July in the books, it means that we are less than four weeks away from the 2012 trading deadline. For a club like the Atlanta Braves there are holes that must be filled to compete for a playoff spot this season.
One of those holes is in the bullpen, which is a bit surprising after the Braves brought back every key arm from one of the best bullpens in the game. However top setup man Jonny Venters has been hittable this year and Eric O'Flaherty has also been very up and down. In fact the only reliever at the back of the Braves' bullpen that has continued to pitch well from a year ago is All-Star closer Craig Kimbrel.
This article takes a look at 10 relievers that the Braves should take a look at between now and the deadline to strengthen their bullpen. With even one of these arms in the pen, the Braves could have a more reliable bridge from their starters to Kimbrel in order to close out victories.
