Braves make offer to Tazawa 

November, 5, 2008
Notes from Day 2 at the GM meetings in Dana Point, Calif.:

• Atlanta has made a formal offer to Junichi Tazawa but wouldn't confirm what the terms of the offer were. Tazawa's contract with his industrial league team requires him to participate in a tournament in mid-November, so he technically isn't free to sign with an MLB team until after that tournament is completed.

• Despite media reports to the contrary, Jeff Francoeur's name has not come up in trade talks.
