Hey Braves! How about Grady Sizemore?

Aside from Jason Heyward, the Braves other three outfielders are hitting an abysmal .181 combined through roughly 300 at-bats. Nate McLouth, Matt Diaz, and Melky Cabrera have failed to find any sort of swing at the plate, and are only hurting the Braves chances in a division where it looks like every team is eyeing the division title. 

The Braves are currently 4.5 games back, but have some issues in the back of their rotation and up the middle with Yunel Escobar and Jair Jurrjens on the disabled list. The Braves made an aggressive move for Nate McLouth after just one solid year in Pittsburgh and so far he has done nothing to impress the team.

It appears the Indians are growing uneasy with Grady Sizemore, who's average and on-base percentage dropped consistently three years in a row. Sizemore will be 28 in August and the Indians could land at least a pair of good prospects in exchange for him. He brings speed and a pretty good glove to any team, and a change of scenery may really benefit him. 

The Indians are 7.5 games back and if it gets any worse, they could look to move him.
