Braves not interested in Penny
It’s been an eventful and hectic week for the Braves. But contrary to an ESPN.com report, a Major League source said that the Braves don’t have any interest in acquiring Brad Penny from the Red Sox.
If John Smoltz gets through another rehab start tonight, the Red Sox will view Penny as even more expendable. But the Braves won’t be among the teams showing interest in the big right-hander.
With Tommy Hanson’s arrival on Sunday, the Braves will have form a rotation that they envision keeping in place for the rest of the season. If Kenshin Kawakami would struggle, Kris Medlen could vacate his bullpen spot and return to the rotation.
