Braves also eyeing the market for relievers and offense

The Braves most glaring need is undoubtedly starting pitching. However, since there are few sellers and starters can be pricey at the trade deadline, Jon Heyman reports Alex Anthopoulos is also in the market for bullpen help and offense.

The Braves already have one of the best bullpens in the majors, and their offense is also well-above average, especially once Ozzie Albies returns to the lineup. However, if they are going to overcome their starting pitching woes, those two areas will have to be nearly perfect, and acquiring relief help and some more offensive firepower should be much easier than trading for a high-quality starting pitcher.
