Braves, Rangers discussing Beltre deal


Though it is not clear how serious trade talks are, the Braves appear to be in the mix for the services of future Hall of Famer Adrian Beltre:

Beltre’s power output has been low this season, but he has still hit for great average and could easily catch fire with a change of scenery for a contending team. The Braves have added a couple nice bullpen arms without giving up serious long-term assets, and that would most certainly have to be the case for the Braves to pick him up.

A Beltre trade could also allow the Braves to platoon Dansby Swanson and Johan Camargo at shortstop, as Swanson has only mustered a .211 average against lefties this season.

Stay tuned.
