The Atlanta Braves are attempting to make one final push for control in the NL East by acquiring a solid veteran in Bronson Arroyo. As of right now, a deal looks unlikely because the Reds are asking for top hitting prospect Jarrod Saltalamacchia. But, according to sources close to negotiations, the Braves are exploring other options in making a trade happen. The Braves are currently 2.5 games behind the Mets and are set to face the Cardinals for a three game series.
