The Atlanta Braves would like to trade for a top-of-the-rotation starter and have Chris Archer and Jose Quintana on their wish list.
They also had scouts watching Sonny Gray over the weekend.
However, the Braves have more interest in Archer and Quintana because they are under contract longer.
Archer is under contractual control for four more seasons, including club-friendly options in 2020 ($9 million) and 2022 ($11 million).
Quintana's deal runs through 2020 including two option years. He will make about $31 million in 2018-20, assuming the options are exercised.
