The Atlanta Braves just missed the playoffs this past year. Now, they have a big decision to make on what free-agent pitcher to go after this offseason.
They have solid pitching in Tim Hudson, Jair Jurrjens and Tommy Hanson. Brandon Beachy and Mike Minor filled in very nicely for a good portion of the year.
