The consensus was beginning to build that the Braves were going to be sellers in the very near future with rumors buzzing about AJ Pierzynski, Jonny Gomes, Cameron Maybin, Jim Johnson, and others possibly going to new teams.
However, it doesn't appear that the Braves are done looking for assets that could help right now, especially with the bullpen.

Braves To Sign Jason Frasor http://t.co/NkXKXqlekp— MLB Trade Rumors (@mlbtraderumors) July 16, 2015
This could be a precursor of Jim Johnson being expected to be traded to another team or to shore up the bullpen's depth in the wake of Jason Grilli's injury.
Frasor had a 1.54 ERA with the #Royals before getting released, though he had allowed 39 baserunners in 23 1/3 innings.— Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) July 16, 2015
We will keep you updated as this story develops, but it looks like the Braves could be very busy in the coming weeks, both buying and selling.
