Report: Braves’ Alexi Ogando could be next player traded

The Atlanta Braves figure to be busy in the time leading up to the trade deadline. They’ve already completed multiple deals and are likely to complete a few more deals as they continue with their rebuilding efforts.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports Network reports that pitcher Alexi Ogando‘s name is “coming up a lot in trades” and that he could be the next Braves player to be traded.

Ogando, 32, is having one of his best seasons in his seven-year career, going 1-1 with a 2.74 ERA and a 22/14 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 25 games.

With relief pitching always in high demand and Ogando signed so cheaply, it’s no surprise he’s garnering so much trade attention.

Ogando was signed to to a minor-league deal this past offseason and he figures to bring back a middle-tier prospect back in return, so it was a quality under-the-radar signing by general manager John Coppolella.
