Braves want Jackson from D-backs in Teixeira deal


The Braves are not aggressively shopping Mark Teixeira, but in the process of having brief conversations with various teams, they have informed the Arizona Diamondbacks that any deal would have to include slugger Conor Jackson -- which is something the Diamondbacks have no intention of doing.

The market on Teixeira would appear to be very limited because almost no contenders are in need of a first baseman/DH type of player.
