The Atlanta Braves have Los Angeles Angels outfielder/first baseman Mark Trumbo on their radar, according to David O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. He's on the Braves radar RT @gregoruhlmann: @ajcbraves any chance the braves go for trumbo? — David O'Brien (@ajcbraves) December 14, 2012 There have been reports that the Angels will trade one of their extra outfielders, a group that includes Trumbo, Peter Bourjos and Kendrys Morales, now that they’ve signed Josh Hamilton. While Bourjos is reportedly more likely to be dealt than Trumbo, there is a feeling that both can be acquired for the right player. It appears that the Angels are targeting pitching for their extra outfielders, as they’ve been tied to New York Mets right-hander R.A. Dickey. The Braves have already traded one starter to the Angels this offseason, right-hander Tommy Hanson. Last season for the Angels Trumbo hit .268/.317/.491 with 19 doubles, three triples and 32 home runs over 544 at-bats. The 26-year-old owns a career line of .259/.302/.478 over three seasons at the major league level.  Follow @mlbinjurynews !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://www.mlbinjurynews.com//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs"); var _gaq = _gaq || []; _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-34100676-1']); _gaq.push(['_trackPageview']); (function() { var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true; ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ?

Braves' Teheran shines in Dominican

Julio Teheran's last three starts before the Dominican winter league all-star break showed why the right-hander remains the Atlanta Braves' top prospect despite a difficult second season in Class AAA last summer.

The Braves signed shortstop Ramiro Pena on Thursday to help back up Andrelton Simmons.
