With the loss of lefty relief pitchers Eric O'Flaherty and Jonny Venters to Tommy John surgery, the Atlanta Braves are down to one left-handed arm in their bullpen in the form of Luis Avilan. Ken Rosenthal reports that the Braves are already shopping for a good southpaw for their bullpen this year.

Rosenthal says general manager Frank Wren may target Mike Dunn, who has a 1.74 ERA in 23 appearances with the Miami Marlins this year, would be a perfect fit. Dunn was shipped off by the Braves in exchange for Dan Uggla in 2010.

But even with the injuries, the Braves are still incredibly deep.

"There is still a lot to like with this team," Rosenthal said.

We concur.
