It appears that talks were farther along than originally thought. The Braves have acquired pitcher Javier Vazquez from the White Sox in exchange for at least three prospects. One of those prospects is believed to be infielder Brent Lillibridge, who hit .200 with 1 HR in 29 games for the Braves this past season. As for the pitching prospects, Jo-Jo Reyes is not one of them. I would not be surprised to see Kris Medlen in the deal. Medlen is tearing it up in Fall Ball and had a pretty good season in Double-A.
