Atlanta Braves: Predicting the 2021 Roster
We are halfway through the shortened 2020 season and the Atlanta Braves look to make a deep run into October. However, what will the Braves look like in 2021?
The Atlanta Braves have an exciting core of players that are hoping to finish 2020 with a victory in late October. However, what will this team look like in 2021?
We will take a look at what the Braves could potentially look like next season. This will include some predictions on off-season moves such as free agency and possible trades.
There are some players that we know for certain will be on the Braves next season. For example, Ronald Acuna Jr., Ozzie Albies, and Freddie Freeman will be at the top of the lineup if healthy.
Max Fried and Mike Soroka are the top of the rotation for the foreseeable future. The Braves have a lot of options, or question marks, about the rotation for the future, but these two young studs give the Braves a lot of confidence every time they take the mound.
However, what will the roster look like around these players? There are several question marks on the roster (hello, Austin Riley) that raises questions about the future roster construction. Also, what do the Braves do with veteran players like Ozuna, Markakis, and Flowers?
With all that being said, let’s jump into the roster prediction for next season. One last note, we are assuming the 26 man roster and the universal DH are here to stay and will be considering them when building the roster.
