Report: Braves reached out to Rockies about Nolan Arenado trade

The Atlanta Braves have been in the market for an upgrade at third base this offseason, and they may turn their attention toward an even bigger prize if they are unable to sign free agent slugger Josh Donaldson.

The Braves have inquired with the Colorado Rockies about a potential trade for Nolan Arenado, Jon Morosi of MLB.com reports.

The Rockies signed Arenado to an eight-year, $260 million extension last offseason. Most teams would be hesitant to take on that kind of contract while also giving up prospects, so Colorado would likely have to pay some of it down. To this point, they don’t seem all that intent on trading Arenado.

While the Rockies appear to be open to dealing Arenado in the right deal, we heard similar talk less than a year ago. The Braves kicked the tires on Anthony Rendon and are believed to still be in on Donaldson, but an Arenado trade with any team is still a long shot at this point.
