There's no doubting the talent of the Atlanta Braves bullpen.  With a sparkling 3.08 ERA, the Braves relievers rank fourth in all of baseball.

The only problem?  They also rank third in most innings pitched.

Atlanta could look to shore up their bullpen and deflect some of the workload of Jonny Venters by acquiring either Jon Rauch or Jason Frasor from the Toronto Blue Jays.

This rumor appears to have legs, according to's Mark Bowman.
