In their continuing quest for a lefty reliever, the Atlanta Braves have expressed interest in trading for San Diego Padres reliever Joe Thatcher, Jon Morosi tweets.


Thatcher wouldn't quite be the traditional trade deadline rental. He still has one more year of arbitration eligibility and will become a free agent in 2014 at the earliest.

Mainly used as a left-handed specialist, Thatcher has a 2.25 ERA over 28 innings in 47 appearances this season. He has a 3.21 career ERA in seven Major League seasons, all with the Padres.
