The Braves are looking to add a starter before the 4 p.m. trade deadline, and it appears Kevin Gausman is a name to watch:
teams are showing signs of getting serious about Kevin gausman. rockies, braves, brewers are among teams interested.

Gausman has been solid for the Orioles, but nothing more. It would be disappointing to see the team give up prospects of worth for him.
Alex Anthopolous has kept all three moves he mas made this at the deadline under wraps until the last second, so this could just be the rumor mill churning. The Braves are seemingly inquiring about everyone, but this shows they are still pursuing that pitcher. With the Orioles rumored to have another deal in place, however, it will be interesting to see if Atlanta is on the other end of the phone.
