Earlier this week the Braves third baseman Chipper Jones tore his ACL. He tore his ACL when he fell down trying to throw out a runner off balance.

This injury may end Chipper Jones Hall of Fame career and now the Braves are looking for a new third baseman.

One player they have looked at is Chone Figgins. Figgins is having a down year this year as the Mariners second baseman but he could be a good fit at third base for the Braves.

This season Figgins is hitting .253 with 30 stolen bases. He has turned it around recently because a few weeks ago he was hitting around .230. Figgins like everyone on the Mariners has not reached expectations and I think a change of scenery might be good for him.

Figgins has three years and $27 million left on his contract so he will most likely clear waivers. Figgins has not been a good player for the Mariners and if Figgins leaves it will make room for Dustin Ackley who is in AAA Tacoma right now.

I think trading Figgins would be good for both sides because the Braves can get some speed at the top of the lineup which they have lacked this season and the Mariners will get a player who hasn’t produced off their hands which will also make room for Dustin Ackley.
