Atlanta Braves Trade Speculation: 8 Bats to Help Mask Heyward, Uggla's Struggles

The Atlanta Braves are 59-43 in large part because of their pitching staff. The Braves have struggled some in that department in the second half, but are still sixth in the league in ERA.

A large problem with the inconsistency of the offense has been the highly-noted struggles of Dan Uggla (.195/.270/.388) and the lesser-noted struggles of Jason Heyward (.224/.312/.413).

While I wrote last week that Uggla seems to have turned things around, there is a chance that he could slide back, though I don't think that he will. Heyward has battled a shoulder problem all year, and it has showed on the field.

With that said, it has been well-publicized that the Braves are looking for an impact bat, preferably a right-handed power-hitting outfielder. There a couple of big name guys that the organization is looking at, but I think some others are much more likely.

In this article, I'll talk about eight guys of varying levels of impact that I think the Braves will make a move for. Some will come at a much cheaper price, while others will cost some big parts of the farm system.
