Reds trade could give Atlanta another smack at deadline

Recent Atlanta Braves rumors have linked them to a Cincinnati Reds player many teams could be after before the trade deadline is up.

The trade deadline Atlanta Braves Rumors have prompted the team to add both offense and pitching ahead of Tuesday. The Cincinnati Reds could offer the Braves a player in an all-out sale mode that would fit into last year’s model of adding multiple bats to the roster.

Corresponding MLB Network’s Jon Morosi, the latest Braves rumors have Atlanta as a possible destination for Drury. The super-utility man, who has found a third-base home regularly for the Reds this season, is having a fantastic year for Cincinnati and should be trade fodder for a club looking for someone who can play in a variety of positions .

Brave Rumors: Brandon Drury is someone Atlanta can trade for and fix a few problems

Drury wouldn’t end up seeing much action at third base if he ended up with the Braves. That’s Austin Riley’s job. Nobody will take it away.

However, with Ozzie Albies out, the Braves have a big opening at second base. Drury could also see starts elsewhere on the field and he’s more than capable of finding his way in the corners in both outfield positions as well.

Versatile players like Drury are coveted by more than the fantasy baseball owners who design them. There’s a reason someone like the Chicago Cubs’ Ian Happ is also an incredibly desirable trading target right now. His history of playing in multiple positions makes him a target for almost every team. Like Happ, Drury is someone a general manager should trade for when he can and figure things out later.

There should be little doubt that Drury will continue to play well after leaving Cincinnati. He was a highly regarded young player with the Arizona Diamondbacks years ago. A problem with his eyesight nearly ended his career when he joined the New York Yankees in 2018. Now he’s playing well enough where you could argue he should have been an All-Star, and it’s no surprise he’s joining the Braves rumors chat.

Cincinnati gave Drury a chance this season and he proved his worth. Atlanta, with zero top 100 prospects, seems like a nice trading partner for the Reds, who should be looking for a good, but not great, yield for him. Reds trade could give Atlanta another smack at deadline
