According to Troy Renck of the Denver Post, the Atlanta Braves' interest in outfielder Seth Smith of the Colorado Rockies has cooled recently. While the Braves would like to acquire Smith, they aren't willing to part with left fielder/second baseman Martin Prado unless they can get another player to add infield depth.

The Rockies, who are looking for a second baseman, have also dangled Eric Young Jr. in trade talks, but Renck says there are no active discussions as of right now. The Mets were said to be interested, but the Rockies would like their second baseman Justin Turner in return.

Another team that could emerge as a Smith suitor may be the Rays, who missed out on Coco Crisp. The Rockies would love to have Wade Davis or Jeff Niemann, Renck says.
