Braves, Twins close to Jaime Garcia trade

The sides may be coming close to a deal that would send Garcia to Minnesota. The Twins and Braves are close to a trade that would send lefty Jaime Garcia to Minnesota, according to FOX’s Ken Rosenthal. It’s unclear who would be sent to Atlanta in the trade, if finalized. MLB Daily Dish has not confirmed. Atlanta scratched Triple-A starter Aaron Blair on Thursday night as a contingency plan for Garcia potentially being traded before his start Friday against the Dodgers. It appears that things are far enough along that the Braves were willing to tab Blair as a potential Plan B. Garcia’s...

MLB Trade Rumors: Twins close to acquiring Jaime Garcia from Braves

The Twins weren’t expected to do much before the trade deadline, but this is interesting. Though it didn’t initially seem like the Twins were that gung-ho about completing a trade before the August 1st MLB trade deadline, things may have taken a turn.

The Atlanta Braves and the Minnesota Twins are still discussing a potential trade of Jaime Garcia but the deal has not yet been completed according to a report by MLB.com’s Mark Bowman. There is still a chance the teams could complete a trade, but it appears ongoing talks will be necessary to reach an agreement on the players and money that would be exchanged.

MLB Trade Rumors: Jaime Garcia to Twins “not probable”

It sounds like trade talks between the Twins and the Braves have sort of fallen apart. Late Thursday, a report came seemingly out of nowhere, saying the Twins were close to acquiring 31-year-old veteran pitcher Jaime Garcia from the Braves. Several reporters claimed that the trade talks were in the “final stages.” It sounded like it was a done deal. I even started a blog post announcing the trade was official, darn it. Come Friday morning, however, and there was still no trade. The teams were said to be haggling over the final details. And now, there’s this: As mentioned this...

Jaime Garcia’s grand night leads Braves to big win over Dodgers

We all figured Jaime Garcia was on his way to the Minnesota Twins this time last night. A deal was close, according to many reports, and it seemed inevitable a trade was coming. Aaron Blair had even packed his bag and traveled to L.A. to fill in. That trade didn’t happen. He was still a Brave. And as many questioned if the oft-injured southpaw should start tonight against baseball’s hottest team, Garcia turned in his one of his finest performances of the year on the mound ... and at the plate. The Braves jumped on Alex Wood — who came into the game with an 11-0 record and sub-2 ERA...

Braves Should NOT Trade Jaime Garcia

Atlanta Braves fans have suffered through three straight losing seasons, the last two epic failures. This season the Braves have bounced back with an exciting team that battles to the last out. The fans deserve to have the Braves organization give this season’s team every chance to win. Most importantly, the players deserve the opportunity to see if they can overcome the odds and earn a playoff spot. Guys like Nick Markakis, Julio Teheran Mike Foltynewicz and most importantly Freddie Freeman, need to be respected and given the chance to earn post season play. The odds may be daunting, but...

Braves’ rumored deal with Twins for Jaime Garcia held up over prospect’s medical concerns

We now know the reason the Braves weren’t able to trade Jaime Garcia to the Twins. It wasn’t Garcia’s medical past, as many speculated. Instead, according to Ken Rosenthal, it was the Twins prospect (who wasn’t named) who had some medical issues that the Braves weren't comfortable with. Combine that with some holdup over who would assume the bulk of Jaime’s remaining $4 million salary and it’s not hard to see why a deal fell through. Last night, amidst 24 hours of rumors and speculation, Garcia limited the red-hot Dodgers to just three runs over seven innings. He also hit a...

Mark Bowman claimed the problem wasn’t medical issues. But guess what? The problem was medical issues. On Thursday night, the Twins were reportedly in the “final stages” of completing a trade with the Atlanta Braves for starting pitcher Jaime Garcia. It seemed like a done deal, but by Friday morning, the deal still hadn’t made. Come Friday afternoon—less than 24 hours since the story broke—the deal appeared to be off. What happened?

The trade market for Jaime Garcia has not cool off at all after the deal with the Twins seemingly fell through. Over the last 48 hours or so, it has been a rollercoaster ride in terms of the fate of Jaime Garcia. It appeared as though the Braves were very close to trading Garcia to the Minnesota Twins for, at the time, an unknown prospect. However, the talks stalled as concerns over medicals on the players involved seemed to be the major hang up. With Jaime’s medical history, the conclusion many reached was that there were issues with Garcia’s medical reports that spooked the Twins. As...

BRAVES NEWS Atlanta goes to Chavez Ravine and cools off LA Seeing as how the Braves were coming off of a three-game sweep at the hands of the Cubs, it was probably understandable to be a little wary of Atlanta’s chances this weekend against a Dodgers team that was on an 11-game win streak and 31-4 in their last 35.
