3 Potential Replacements If Michael Bourn Leaves

If Michael Bourn leaves, the Braves will need to find a replacement.

Michael Bourn is set to become a free agent at the end of the season. This could be bad news for Braves fans for a bunch of reasons. The biggest reason is that rumors suggest that the Nationals and Phillies will go hard after Bourn this winter, as well as newfound payroll teams like the Red Sox and Dodgers. The same goes for the Rangers if they can't bring Josh Hamilton back.

With these teams chasing Bourn, his price tag will likely be very high. Braves' ownership, Liberty Media, has been very cheap since taking control of the team, so it wouldn't be a surprise if the team let Bourn leave this winter.

This article takes a look at three potential players to replace Bourn if he departs. Since the Braves don't have anyone within the organization that is a serious candidate, these three would come either through free agency or a trade.
