Early Trade Deadline Targets for the Braves

As the All-Star break approaches, it carries a reminder that the trade deadline is not far behind.

Clubs will look over their rosters, assessing strengths and weaknesses and determining what, if any, steps can be taken to solidify their chances for a playoff berth.

The Atlanta Braves have enjoyed a comfortable lead in the NL East over the season's first three months, despite having to navigate through peaks and valleys offensively.

The Braves are a fascinating team when it comes to taking an inventory.

Atlanta's lineup has shown a deficiency when it comes to putting the ball in play and scoring runs on a regular basis. With three righty bats struggling to produce consistently, general manager Frank Wren may need to look for another proven middle-of-the-order threat.

The Braves have been buoyed by strong pitching to start the season. Their rotation has depth, but adding one or two more veteran arms to the bullpen should be expected.

With the trade deadline just over a month away, the following is a list of potential trade targets for the Braves.
