The good news for Braves fans is that young Miami Marlins star outfielder Christian Yelich wants to be traded.

The bad news is that the Braves once cut Yelich's brother.

Christian Yelich is upset the Marlins are rebuilding and have traded away some of their best players.

It would take a lot to acquire Yelich and at least 12 teams, including the Braves, are reportedly interested.

Adding Yelich could give the Braves a talented young outfield of Yelich, Ender Inciarte and prized rookie Ronald Acuna.

However, MLB Network’s Peter Gammons said the Marlins want Acuna included in any trade for Yelich. That’s not likely to happen but the Braves have plenty of prospects to offer.
