The MLB Trade deadline is set for 4 p.m. ET Monday and we know that the Atlanta Braves are on the hunt for rotation help. With that said, it has been pretty quiet in regards to rumors. That may change over the weekend as we get closer to the deadline. MLB Network’s Jon Morois reports that the Braves and White Sox are among the teams with interest in Angels starter Dylan Bundy.

Bundy is 27 and is enjoying a great season in his first with the Angels. Going into Saturday, he has been worth 1.1 fWAR and has a 2.58 ERA and 3.08 FIP in 38 1/3 innings. Opponents do have a .237 BABIP against him so there may be some regression coming but Bundy has been solid and should be an attractive option for many teams looking for pitching at the deadline. He will be arbitration eligible for the final time this offseason.

It has been another disappointing season for the Angels who dealt infielder Tommy La Stella to Oakland Friday night so they should be eager to start dismantling their roster. For the Braves it likely comes down to price tag and it remains to be seen what Alex Anthopoulos will be willing to part with in order to add a pitcher.
