In order to complete a trade with either the Dodgers or the Royals, the Braves would probably have to give away Jurrjens and Prado, as well as a top prospect, such as Mike Minor or Randall Delgado.
It is impossible to know whether this trade would be worth it until the 2012 season has been played.
Jurrjens' and Prado's values are difficult to measure because of their young age and inconsistency.
Without Jurrjens or Mike Minor, the Braves' pitching rotation would look like this:
1: Tommy Hanson
2: Tim Hudson
3: Brandon Beachy
4: Julio Teheran
5: Randall Delgado
This could be a very dominant pitching rotation, especially with a bit more experience in the major leagues.
All of these pitchers have the potential to play just as well as Jurrjens did in the previous season.
In the batting lineup, if Prado were to be traded for Kemp in the outfield, the Braves' offense would get a huge upgrade.
If the Braves were to give up Prado and Jurrjens in a trade, their team risks losing great talent, but could be greatly improved.
