No Salt without youthful SP
The Atlanta Braves have said that Jarrod Saltalamacchia will not be traded unless the Braves get a young stud pitcher in return. Examples of these pitchers would include Tom Gorzellaney and Ian Snell, but neither look to be avaliable from the young Pirates team.
Jarrod is having an exceptional year with the bat, but is behind Brian McCann at the catching position, and has been forced to play a lot of first base this year, as Scott Thorman isn't cutting it.
