Links for 11/4: Taveras, Peavy, Tazawa

on .

Some new links for you guys today and hopefully I'll be able to get up 11-15 of the top prospect list either today or tomorrow for you guys.

  • Contrary to some media reports, the Braves are not interested in Colorado outfielder Willy Taveras according to Dave O'Brien of the AJC. Taveras isn't any better than Josh Anderson (and may very well be worse) so this rumor never really made sense.
  • Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe says that the Braves are still the front runner to land Jake Peavy. He also says that the Braves seem willing to deal Yunel Escobar. As someone on the outside looking in, this doesn't make sense unless the Braves have another cheap shortstop lined up. Peavy's contract seems much less reasonable when Khalil Greene's is also part of the package.
  • As previously reported, the Braves are one of seven teams interested in Japanese amateur free agent Junichi Tazawa. Tazawa, who was expected to be the first pick in the Japanese draft, chose not to play in Japan and instead sign with an American club, causing quite a stir in the baseball world.
