The Atlanta Braves are no longer trying to trade for Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Jake Peavy, Ken Rosenthal tweets. The end of talks in that situation likely points to the Braves' intentions of focusing on getting bullpen help.

 

The likely reason the Braves dipped out on Peavy is their asking price, which Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports says was top prospects. Atlanta has been known to want to hold on to their best young talent in most cases.

 

So the Braves remain focused on bolstering a young bullpen, despite the fact that Tim Hudson is gone for the season with his injured ankle, and Paul Maholm is currently on the disabled list with a bum wrist.

Keep an eye on the Braves to potentially make waves with Brian Wilson, who just worked out for several teams late last week.
