Braves make offer to Damon
The Atlanta Braves have reportedly offered former Yankee outfielder Johnny Damon a one-year deal, but his agent Scott Boras has said he is seeing a two-year contract. There has also been reported interest in Damon from Tampa Bay and Detroit. The Braves have, according to Baseball America, the number-one prospect in Jason Heyward. The young rookie will have every opportunity to make the team and could prevent the Braves from engaging in a bidding war for the aging outfielder.
