The Orioles and Braves have discussed Martin Prado and Jair Jurrjens

File this under “stuff that would be interesting if the Orioles had anything the Braves wanted,” but Rosenthal and Morosi report that the Orioles and the Braves have had discussions about a trade involving Martin Prado and/or Jair Jurrjens.

As a Braves fan I’m not opposed to seeing Jurrjens moved. I worry about his health and I worry that he’s due for a regression.  But the return had better be decent. And I’m not exactly sure what the Orioles have in terms of young talent to send back to Atlanta.  Prado has been connected to a number of teams and the same goes for him: sell him based on a reputation that probably won’t be matched by his future performance, but get something decent back.

The Braves and Orioles just don’t seem to match up in that regard.
