Source: The Braves don't want Damon; may start the season with Heyward on the big club

1

Money quotes: "A team source tells me that the Braves discussed Damon recently, and the clear sense of the room was that (a) his arm just won't play in the Turner Field outfield; (b) he's just not versatile enough to move around, and the Braves want to be able to move around their outfielders this year; and (c) he's going to want too much money." "They'd reconsider if he went cheaper, but they just don't care enough for him to think about making a bid." "...they would love to break camp with him, and are taking a "it's his job to lose" approach this spring." "...it may be best to view whatever the team does this year as an act being taken by people who think that the Braves will be in the playoffs."
