Trade Rumor: Aaron Judge to be Dealt to the Atlanta Braves

In one of the biggest trade rumors of the season, there's some speculation brewing that if the New York Yankees continue to struggle, outfielder Aaron Judge could be on his way to the Atlanta Braves.

The Braves are sliding themselves after showing they have the talent to be a threat in the playoffs. The team is currently 5.0 games back of the NL East leading New York Mets and management is weighing their options on how good they feel their team could be. Adding a power bat like Judge would go a long way for their lineup. 

The trade would see Judge head to the Braves and OF Cristian Pache, LHP Kyle Muller and RHP Bryce Elder would be headed to the Bronx. Muller is considered the Braves top pitching prospect, meanwhile Elder is ranked 11th in their system and Pache is hitting just over .100 in 22 games for the Braves this season. The Braves certainly have the talent to make the trade work as their farm system is ranked #1 in all of baseball.

Keep an eye on these two teams as both the Braves and the Yankees are going to be major players before the July 30 trade deadline.
