After trading away Jordan Walden the Braves are looking for arms in front of closer Craig Kimbrel. One pitcher the Braves are showing interest in is Jason Grilli.

Grilli, 38, spent last season between the Pirates and Angels posting a 4.00 ERA with 57 strikeouts in 54 innings of work.

A reliable setup man for years who has proven himself capable in the closers role Grilli could give the Braves a ninth inning option in cause Kimbrel was to miss any time.

Grilli made $4.25 million last season but has found scant interest as a free agent this winter. With Andrew Miller off the market and David Robertson getting closer to a decision there could be additional interest in Grilli coming.
