General manager Frank Wren also will have to decide whether to make a huge offer to center fielder Michael Bourn, who is represented by Scott Boras.
If Bourn jumps to another team the Nationals and Phillies figure to be players in that bidding war the Braves also will need to find a center fielder and leadoff hitter.
