Rockies Trade Interest Turning From Braves Prado To Jurrjens

The Colorado Rockies seem to really like Atlanta Braves players, at least that's what the rumors are saying. After flirting with a Martin Prado trade for the past month, the rumors are now saying that perhaps they are pursuing starting pitching, so naturally they're pursuing Jair Jurrjens.

Braves beat writer Mark Bowman agrees:

Same applies to all of these "rumors," they are after all rumors and should be taken with a grain of salt. Though the Rockies certainly seem active on the trade front, and determined to improve their club. The Braves appear to match up well with them, though I get the impression that there is some reluctance on the part of the Rockies to trade their younger players, and the Braves want to acquire younger players with more years of control for JJ and Marteeen.

I'm gonna make the statement that anytime you hear a rumor like this coming from one team, you can go ahead and infer that the Braves are having the same conversation with at least several other teams. I'd also infer that any rumor saying a team has interest in Gio Gonzalez or Andrew Bailey, that team more than likely also has interest in Jurrjens. That's how these writers are getting to the 8 to 10 interested in Jurrjens rumor. For instance, here is an idea of the trade market for starting pitchers:
