For much of last season, the offensive production from the Braves' starting outfielders was very unimpressive.
Martin Prado hit only .260, Jason Heyward hit .227, Nate McLouth hit .228, and Jordan Schafer hit .240.
And then they acquired Michael Bourn from the Astros, which gave the Braves a starter consistent in offense and defense, as well as stealing bases.
If the Braves were to make a trade for Matt Kemp, who is a career .294 hitter and had an MVP-quality performance this past season, their offense would be greatly improved.
The combination of the two star outfielders, as well as Jason Heyward, who has just as much potential, the Braves' lineup would be quite formidable.
Also, this trade would put Martin Prado in a utility position, so that he could give necessary backup to Chipper Jones and Tyler Pastornicky, if he is named shortstop, as well as the outfielders on their off days.
