The Braves appear to be patiently awaiting the right time to deal Jair Jurrjens.

For the last few weeks the rumors of the Atlanta Braves dealing away key contributors have been sweeping through the fan base. Those rumors indicate that the team could be willing to part with Jair Jurrjens and Martin Prado, especially if they can acquire a big bat to play left field. 

So far it's been quiet on actual news regarding the Braves moving All-Star pitcher Jair Jurrjens, but there have been some stories leaking out that say this may be what the Braves have wanted all along.

According to a tweet by Joel Sherman of the New York Post, the Braves are reportedly waiting out the free agency of CJ Wilson and Mark Buehrle before dealing Jurrjens. The hope is that the trade market could increase as some of the other top options are off the table. Another rumor according to Mark Bowman of says the team may not be shopping Jurrjens as actively because there is some worry that Tim Hudson may not be full strength to start spring training after recent back surgery.

With little movement on the free agent market in terms of starting pitchers, Braves fans may be waiting a little while longer before anything could happen on the trade front with Jurrjens. Though once Wilson and Buehrle sign and if Japanese star Yu Darvish decides to stay in Japan(he's undecided currently), the Braves could find a team willing to really pay up for Jurrjens.

This article takes a look at 10 different deals the Braves would be willing to accept for Jurrjens as a recent report on Twitter by SI's Jon Heyman reports that the Reds are "very interested" in Jurrjens and are one of 10 teams with interest.
