Braves fans shouldn't expect too much this year, but Santa may give Atlanta the gift of a new SS or OF this Christmas. Here are a few players that could be that much-needed present.

Ronny Cedeno: The Pirates shortstop has a middle-of-the-pack .249 average, but he would be a decent replacement for Gonzo.

Edgar Renteria: Last time Renteria played for the Braves he finished the season with a whopping .382 avg. and .390 OBP. I would be thrilled to see Edgar back in an Atlanta uniform, but his age and salary expectations could prevent the possible reunion.

Andruw Jones: Yes the Beloved '90s Braves CF is still playing and currently a free agent. He is getting somewhat old, but Jones could be a great fourth outfield option. Don’t break out the A. Jones jerseys just yet. He will want a pricey short-term contract.

Seth Smith: Probably the most realistic addition this winter is the Rockies OF. Smith as a .275 career avg. and decent home runs per season.

Coco Crisp: By adding Crisp, the Braves would have the speediest outfield in the National League. The Bourn-Crisp combo would make for dangerously good baserunning. With a career .264 average and 40 to 50 steals, Crisp would be an offensive catalyst for the Braves.
