The Atlanta Braves have already acquired three starting pitchers this offseason and they may not be finished yet. ESPN.com’s Jerry Crasnick reports that the Braves are still interested in adding a top of the rotation arm and remain interested in Chicago’s Chris Sale and Tampa Bay’s Chris Archer.

The price tag for Sale is reportedly very high and a bidding war may occur during the Winter Meetings. Crasnick also reports that the Braves are reluctant to include infield prospect Ozzie Albies in any deal.

That may be a bit of posturing on part of Atlanta but the free agent additions of R.A. Dickey and Bartolo Colon combined with the trade of Jaime Garcia may allow them to take a more firm stance.

The Winter Meetings get underway on Sunday and it looks like the Braves could be one of the more active teams in attendance.
