Rosterbation-Did the Derek Lowe trade save Jurrjens and Prado?



Lots of new info coming out, Pastornicky could be penciled in at SS, McCann has maxxed out his contract with Silver Sluggers and All Star selections. Post GM meetings, pre-Winter Meetings, where do the Braves stand, what do they need and what are other options? Frank Wren is listening, but not pulling the trigger too quickly.

Lowe is owed $10M

McCann C $11.5M

Freeman 1B ~0.5M

Uggla 2B 13M

Pastornicky SS ~0.425M

Chipper 3B 14M (13M salary + 1M signing bonus in Jan)

Prado LF ~4.5M

Bourn CF ~7M

Heyward RF ~0.6M

total so far = ~$61.525

 

Hudson $9M

Jurrjens ~5M

Hanson ~0.6M

Beachy ~0.5M

Minor or Teheran ~$0.45M 

Rotation = ~$15.55M Total so far = ~$77.075

 

Kimbrel ~$0.5M

Venters ~0.5M

O'Flaherty ~2M

Medlen ~0.5

Martinez ~0.5

Vizcaino ~0.45

Hoover ~0.425

Bullpen total = ~$4.875M Total so far = ~$81.950M

 

Ross $1.625M

Diaz $2M

Hinske $1.5M

Bench total = $5.125M needing 2 players Total so far = ~$87.075M

 

With a small increase in salary over 2011's $91M starting salary (per Cot's) it looks like we have $4-8M available for 2 bench guys to back up SS and CF unless we trade more salary away. We can still talk to Moylan too. Moving Prado to the bench doesn't help much unless we get a SS/CF combo for the other bench guy.

Hoover and Vizcaino are certainly question marks for the pen.
