When Andruw Jones and the Braves parted ways this off season it left a huge void in the middle of the outfield for Bobby Cox and the rest of Atlanta.
Sunday they took a step to fill that void with agreeing to a trade with the Oakland A's for Mark Kotsay. Kotsay missed most of last year with a back injury but says he's healthy now and ready to go. It was three years ago when he hit .314 with 15 homers. Atlanta sends pitcher Joey Devine west to Oakland.
