Atlanta's best move might be keeping Teheran

Julio Teheran is a valuable trade chip, but if the Braves can't get a big enough return, they might better off holding onto the young righty.

Jim Bowden ESPN Senior Writer 

As a former GM here is why Braves GM John Coppolella says he doesn't expect to trade Julio Teheran: 1. He doesn't want the player to be thinking about the possibility which could disrupt his performances. 2. He wants the leverage in trade negotiations that not only he doesn't have to trade him but is not inclined unless he is totally overwhelmed and wins the deal. 3. If he doesn't get what he wants in trade offers and holds on to the player, he's prepared the fan base for no deal. However, in their rebuilding process trading him is probably the best move based on where they are and the low inventory of quality starting pitching on the present trade market.....which should allow for a strong rebuilding trade just like the Shelby Miller trade they made in the off-season. Bottom line: ignore his comment.

How low can you go?

Since the beginning of May, these five players have microscopic ERAs. San Francisco is lucky enough to lay claim to two pitchers on the list.

Atlanta among most tortured cities

The Braves delivered Atlanta's only major professional sports title in 1995, nearly 30 years after pro sports arrived in the city. By Bill Barnwell's measurement, only four cities suffered more miserable streaks that ended with a championship. Sports Misery Index

Smith remaining upbeat toward rehab

Mallex Smith isn't dwelling on the negative as he's set to miss eight to 10 weeks due to a fractured left thumb. "It'll heal, and when it heals I'll be back," Smith said. "The rest of my body is fine, so I can't [be upset]. I'm in great spirits right now, everybody. No sad train for me.” Atlanta Journal-Constitution
