Braves in talks for shortstop help – updated with Wilson injury

Vivlamore reporting from Turner Field.

The Braves did not make a roster move Friday to replace injured shortstop Andrelton Simmons as they are in trade talks to obtain a player.

“We’re having conversations and how we best fill that,” Braves general manager Frank Wren said. “It’s somewhat of a short-term need, so we’re waiting to find the right fit. … We’ve had conversations over the break with clubs. It’s one of those (you) can’t really speed the process up. We’re moving along and hopefully in the next day or so we’ll get to the end of it.”

If a trade is not made the Braves will call up a minor-league player Saturday and not play short-handed another game.

Jack Wilson was in the starting lineup for Friday’s series-opener against the Mets. According to manager Fredi Gonzalez, Martin Prado would serve as the emergency shortstop Friday. Prado had to move to the position when Wilson injured his hand and left the game in the fourth inning. UPDATE: Wilson suffered a dislocation of the middle joint of the small finger of his right hand. X-rays were negative. He is day to day.

It is unlikely that Tyler Pastornicky will be called up from Triple-A Gwinnett, according to Wren. The infielder was sent down to make room for Simmons after starting the season on the major-league roster. Pastornicky played second base in the G-Braves game Thursday.

“We’ve put him in a situation where he’s learning to play,” Wren said. “He’s doing really well at second [base]. And he’s going to play some outfield. He’s in a role right now where we want to leave him in the situation he’s in.”

Wilson remained in Atlanta to work on his hitting and fielding during the All-Star break, changing plans after Simmons’ injury to head home to California for a couple days of rest and relaxation.

“I really think it’s a let’s see how he does’ type of deal,” Wilson said. “I didn’t get to show them much in spring training [after being injured] and then got a couple at-bats here and there. Then when [Simmons] came up, it was pretty much dry from then on. I think it’s going to be one of those things where I’m going to have to prove that I can stay on the field and help the team.”

Too bad that we dumped Drew Sutton a couple of months ago. He’s batting .292 with 1 walk-off homer, 11 RBI and 10 2B in 96 at-bats with Tampa and Pittsburgh. He can play SS, 2B, LF, RF, 3B and 1B, but we shipped him out of Gwinnett. He and Jack could’ve covered it for a few weeks…. If we don’t make a deal, it’ll probably be Josh Wilson from Gwinnett.

DISAPPOINTED

I’m disappointed to hear Wren’s trying to make a 6 week rental kind of a trade.

It just doesn’t seem wise.

Give Pastornicky another shot! It certainly couldn’t hurt his development.

The Brewers have a handful of SS’s on their roster that they wouldn’t miss if they tossed them into the Greinke deal. None of them are better than Wilson, but another warm body might be all we need for the next month if we can seriously upgrade the pitching staff.

Make Wilson work, and get a pitcher. If it’s not Greinke (and it’s looking like he’ll be a Ranger), get someone else, not a SS rental. I know, we have time before the deadline. A lot can happen, though, between now and the end of the month. We have a lot of pitching “ifs,” as all of you know. Go Braves!

FRANK’S JUDGMENT

Apparently Frank is questioning his own judgment in signing Jack Wilson as the Braves backup SS.

Why else does he see a need to make another trade — except that now he must not think Wilson is adequate?

How can players or fans have confidence in your judgment Frank, if you’re not showing any confidence in it?

For just a rental the braves could go for Brendan Ryan (Horrible Bat, above average Defense) Or Jamey Carroll (Better Bat, less power, average defense). I think Scutaro or Bloomquist would cost too much just for a rental and whoever they get has to be ready to take a back seat to Simmons once he does return, but if Heyward’s wrist and shoulder injury last year are any indication of how long it can take to get back into the groove of things Simmons maybe be only 80% or less when he returns….People are going to want to push a kid that has only played Double A and the Majors for a month.

They jump to conclusions when they have just an iota of information, just as they change their opinions on a player after one or two at bats… Something strange convinces them that they indeed are experts in every facet of baseball… Odd, isn’t it?

This is a little surprising. If they acquire a shortstop, he’ll be a guy to back up Simmons when he returns, and also Uggla and pinch hit. Wilson would be gone in that scenario. Guess he isn’t fielding well enough because I can’t imagine getting a slugger or a .300 hitter who plays short. They can find a guy who will hit for a higher average than Wilson has, but I think what they really want is someone who can play excellent defense. If this happens, Wren isn’t questioning his judgment on Wilson, he’s admiting a mistake, which is a good trait.

I do not understand why they didn’t bring up Pastornicky until they got someone else. He may be far from a good shortstop but he would have provided some insurance until they got someone else. To me this is a screw-up royale by Wren.

I was a big wren fan until today. I can understand some of the stupid moves (i.e. signing Wilson in the first place) but hell Gwinnett is only 10 miles away (okay 50 minutes if traffic is bad).

I thought that was the biggest reason to move the AAA team close so you could call up players when you needed them.

Glad that the Rev is learning 2nd base. That will come in handy since we have Uggs signed for 3 1/2 more years.

Wren’s hands are tied.. Anything they save this yr from Lowe and Chipper has to go to try to resign Bourn…I say bring up tp and hope for the best over next 10 days.. if not then panoc

Wren’s not talking about a major deal for a SS people so relax. They obviously don’t like their minor league options so their looking for some insurance in case of an injury to Wilson, which just so happened to occur. If you read the article, Pastornicky is learning 2nd base and they don’t want to upset his development. I read this as they are serious about making him a 2nd baseman more than they don’t think they can trust him at SS. I’m sure they had figured this out in Spring Training.

I thought Martin looked very good on a couple of non-routine plays… plays that I’m not real sure that Pastornicky makes. I’m sorry, but the ‘Rev’ didn’t impress me one bit the entire time that he played, and I don’t see him as much more than a utility player. And my wife likes him less than that.

Whatever Martin does or does not do at shortstop will not be due to a lack of effort on his part. I feel good about betting all I own that he’ll bust his can to play it, and play it right.

The problem is, Simmons was so spectacular that people have forgotten that Pastornicky actually did a decent job at short. 248 with a couple of clutch hits and was not great but not awful defensively. I’d much rather go with im for 4-6 weeks than trade for a veteran and have to give up even a marginal prospect, when the veteran likely won’t be very good. And, what will not bringing Pastornicky up in this situation do to his confidence and/or trade value? Don’t send both him and the league the message that you’ve given up on him.

This is a .500 team, and there are too many holes to fill. Picking up one starter want help this team that much. When your team E.R.A. is around 4.00, and your bench has guys like Hinske, Wilson, Francisco, Diaz all hitting under .230, with 3 of these clowns hitting .200 or below, that is not a good team. This pitching staff has one guy that you can count, Kimbrell. The rest of this staff is made up of guys that are too inconsistent, and none of them can be counted on to win a big game. When you compare this staff with the Nats, which has the best E.R.A. in baseball, it’s easy to see how far the braves have fallen. Before the mastermind G.M. Wren took over, the Braves were where the Nats are now in regards to pitching. Wren is the problem, and the braves aren’t going to the playoffs as long as this clown is in charge. After all, he is the brilliant G.M. that put this staff together, and it is Wren that put this bench together. Unfortunately his big acquisition Livan didn’t work out, now he has made his second big time acquisition, Sheets. LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

there is no reason why Prado couldn’t “fill in” at SS for 5-6 weeks. he is a great athlete and will be alot better than some scrub SS we would bring in for defensive purposes…..that can’t hit his weight. (just like Jack Wilson). I was at the park last night…..Mets pitcher couldn’t throw a strike to save his life and Jack goes up there with ducks on the pond and strikes out on 4 pitches…..aggressive is one thing, stupid another. if we’re gonna spend some money and prospects, add a pitcher……that wins pennants.

chipper playing SS. that’s hilarious. thanks, i needed that.

like the rest of the peanut gallery, trading for a used, stinky band aid would be a terrible move. prado (who should stop being mentioned in trade talks) will do fine for the short term. that dude would pitch if you asked him to. i think we may deal pastornicky if he doesn’t come around. i don’t see him becoming the decent utility player that the braves envision. all of our plans hinge on tomorrow’s start. if sheets performs with any consistency, i don’t see wren pulling the trigger on a SP. medlen to the rotation and trade for a setup man and some bench help.

congrats to mac, good luck to sheets and go bravos.

“We’ve put him in a situation where he’s learning to play,” Wren said. “He’s doing really well at second [base]. And he’s going to play some outfield. He’s in a role right now where we want to leave him in the situation he’s in.”

That is nonsensical crazy talk. A month in the Majors is not gonna harm his development and could very well enhance it.

The smart move would have been to have sent Pastornicky down but wait until the offseason to try to convert him into a utility player. Sign a free agent at that time or see how other players in the system are developing. Shortstop is way too important a position to not have a supply of good backups. Losing a game or two here or there because of this could cost the team the playoffs.

Just let Prado fill in at SS until Wilson can play. Jack Wilson once had over 200 hits in a season for the Pirates. The guy can hit, he just hasn’t had the opportunity to play with the Braves. He has lost a step defensively with age, but he was a pretty good SS once, too. I like Hinske, but he and Francisco are an offensive liabilty on the bench. Freeman does not need rest, Prado can fill in at 1B if he does. Prado can also fill in at third, eliminating the need for Francisco who only gets a hit when he accidentally happens to swing where the ball is. There has to be another left handed bench player available that can square up a ball once in awhile. Fingers crossed on the Ben Sheets experiment. I don’t see Wren making another deal for a starting pitcher. Too expensive for Liberty Media.

So what now guys?? Jack Wilson is hurt! You guys still wanna talk a whole bunch of junk about Frank Wren? I don’t understand how we can talk bad about Frank Wren. Think about all the trades he has pulled off without touching our big time future stars. Let’s not forget that he doesn’t have the greatest budget to work with either. We consistently put an extremely competitive group on the field every day, every year in one of the best divisions in baseball. Also, how old is Jack Wilson? There is a difference between a backup shortstop, and a starter. Jack has a terrible bat, but provides above average defensive skill, great dugout leadership, and a great attitude. We have been relying heavily on the skills of Andrelton Simmons on offense, and it would put anhuge cog in our playoff machine if we replace it wih a .200 avg with no power, and no speed. You need to have cohesiveness to create a successful baseball team. Okay, off my soap box.

P.S. What about Ben Sheets too?! Genius!!

I hope this season goes well but we are only a Chipper Jones injury away from no chance. We have no depth and no bench. This could be the Nationals year.

Jeff Blauser, had no offense, accept the year before his contract was to come up. The braves did not resign him, thank god. The Cubs did and he sucked for them.

The Braves have traded for Paul Janish. The trade was Janish for Todd Redmond.
