After the Braves lost Tim Hudson to a season ending foot injury, it was speculated that the Braves would be looking for pitchers. The Braves, however, were happy with their pitching depth, according to this report: #Braves are monitoring starting pitching market, but think they're in decent shape with the six starters they have. — Jerry Crasnick (@jcrasnick) July 25, 2013 He did say that they were monitoring the pitching market, but he didn't give any names. A name has surfaced in the Braves search for a starting pitcher. Jon Morosi of Fox Sports is reporting that the Braves are 'actively pursuing' Astros starter Bud Norris. The asking price for Norris is very high right now and it isn't known if the Braves are willing to pay the price for Norris. It isn't known what the Braves would give up for Norris, but the fit makes sense. The Braves may want to have a veteran fill in for the injured Hudson. The Braves have some good, young pieces that they could use to fill Hudson's spot, but they may want to fill the spot with a veteran, as they are legitimate threats to go far in the playoffs. On the year, Norris 6-9 with a 3.93 ERA and a 90/43 strikeout-to-walk ratio. The one big concern I have with Norris is that in four full years at the big league level, he hasn't had a winning season. He had a winning season in 2009, but he didn't pitch a full year. It could also be from being on a team that doesn't score too many runs. Norris has good stuff and if acquired by the Braves, their rotation just got a whole lot better. Follow Robert on Twitter @RobertMurrayMLB Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
