Braves Interested in Free Agent Xavier Nady

In his latest blog notes column, Mark Bowman says that the Atlanta Braves may have interest in outfielder Xavier Nady. The Braves are attempting to ascertain the status of Nady's surgically repaired elbow after he underwent Tommy John Surgery last year. Nady is apparently also interested in the Braves, so once Atlanta determines if his elbow is healthy a deal could be worked out quickly.

Nady has played both left and right field, so he could be an option to fill one of the power voids at the corner outfield spots. He has also played some first base in his career, and the Braves may be looking at him for that role, especially coming off of elbow surgery.

Nady would be a low-cost right-handed bat for the Braves. While not ideal, he could serve as the Braves cleanup hitter, but he has mainly hit fifth or sixth in his career.
