Braves postgame quotes following Friday’s loss to Phillies | Atlanta Braves

Braves could fill needs from within, not with deals | braves.com: News
With Martin Prado set to return after the All-Star break and the belief that both Dan Uggla and Jason Heyward can only get better in the second half, the Braves have reason to believe they already possess the pieces that will provide the offensive upgrade. "We're going to have to watch some more before we know if there is a specific area of need," Braves general manager Frank Wren said. "We've got some ideas. But it might very well be in our clubhouse right now. It might be on our roster. It's just about guys getting healthy and seeing how the pieces fit."
