If You're Hardcore: Filling Braves' outfield spots

8/29/2008

With the trade of Mark Kotsay to the Red Sox, the Braves now have two unsettled outfield positions alongside right fielder Jeff Francouer. With the recall of Josh Anderson, the team now has three players vying for time at those two positions.

Atlanta has announced that top center-field prospect Jordan Schafer, who reached Double-A for the first time this year, would not be among the team's September call-ups. That leaves Brandon Jones, Gregor Blanco and Anderson one month to state their case for being part of the team's plans next season. The three will split time between left and center field the rest of the way. How will it shake out?
