The Orioles and Braves discussed a trade involving Martin Prado and Jair Jurrjens, according to Ken Rosenthal and Jon Morosi of Fox Sports.
Prado, 28, had a batting line of .260/.302/.385 with 13 HR in 590 plate appearances last season. He has a career batting line of .293/.341/.434. Prado has played all over the diamond during his career, mostly in left field , second and third base.
Jurrjens, 25, posted a 2.92 ERA in 152 innings last season, with a 5.3 K/9 and 2.6 BB/9. He struggled with injuries also. There is speculation whether Jurrjens has pitched over his head throughout his career, as his xFIP was around a run higher than his ERA in 2009 and 2011. His 2010 ERA (4.64) was eerily close to his xFIP in 2009 (4.28) and 2011 (4.23).
