The Braves are looking for an improvement in left field, especially if Martin Prado is going to be used as a utility man next season.
Of the possible trade options, Chicago White Sox's Carlos Quentin seems closest to ideal.
Last season, with a .254 BA, he hit 24 home runs and 77 RBI.
The White Sox should be willing to trade Quentin, especially because of their need for better starting pitching.
For this deal, the Braves should offer a few young pitchers with high potential, such as Jair Jurrjens and Randall Delgado.
An ideal outfielder for the Braves would have been Matt Kemp. However, he was recently signed for eight years with the Los Angeles Dodgers, so that should rule out any trade for him.
Another possible option would be to try to acquire Kemp's teammate, Andre Ethier, from the Dodgers.
In his career, Ethier hits .291, with a .364 OBP.
The main downside of this deal would be that along with two top pitchers, the Braves would also likely have to add Prado into the trade.
