The Braves don't have many options to consider, but David Schoenfield writes he'd rather keep Freddie Freeman than Julio Teheran, given the Braves' lack of other quality offensive players. Untouchable players for all 30 teams

Jeff Francoeur happy to be with Braves

Most veterans would hope to be traded from a losing team, but Francoeur is happy with where he is. "I love being part of this team," he said. "I'm always going to be invested in Atlanta, just the city in general. And I want to be part of the solution for however long it's going to be." Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Braves' deadline status: sellers

At the deadline, expect a continued pattern of trading veteran role players for future pieces from the Braves, Jim Bowden writes. Just don't expect them to deal Julio Teheran or Freddie Freeman. Trade deadline objectives (Insider)

Braves' biggest trade chip is Teheran

Julio Teheran is probably staying put, Jim Bowden writes, but he'd be one of the top names on the move if Atlanta traded him. Erick Aybar and Nick Markakis are two other intriguing chips the Braves have. Trade option rankings (Insider)
