Atlanta Braves

Scott Harris and Alex Anthopoulos have already traded together once with Joe Jimenez, so why not do it again?

The Braves appear to be in win-now mode. They're rumored to be interested in increasing their already high payroll this offseason. While the Tigers don't have anybody with a high payroll outside of Javier Baez, that doesn't the two teams can't swing a trade.

The Braves are yet another team that needs starting pitching help. While their farm system isn't what it used to be, they still have pieces that could be of interest to the Tigers. They were rumored to be interested in Vaughn Grissom around the trade deadline, and he's shown flashes in the past.

Beyond that, the Braves have a few interesting arms in their system who could help the Tiger sooner rather than later. Darius Vines, AJ Smith-Sawver, Luis De Avila, and Dylan Dodd are among some names to watch there.

With the Braves wanting to win a World Series at any cost, they should be more than willing to move some pieces. If you're Scott Harris, it's time to capitalize.
