Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports are reporting that the Atlanta Braves and Baltimore Orioles are discussing a possible deal involving Jair Jurrjens and Martin Prado. It is noted that it is unlikely that Baltimore would acquire both, just that they are discussing the possibility of getting one or the other.

The move that would make sense for Baltimore would be Jurrjens, who is a 25 year old stud pitcher, something the Orioles have been lacking. He is under contract for two more seasons, but the question is if the Orioles, despite having a strong need, have enough chips they are able to part with compared to other teams who may have interest.

Prado could be a good second baseman in Baltimore with the uncertainty surrounding the health of Brian Roberts in the past couple of years.
