Three players from every NL West team the Atlanta Braves could acquire

San Francisco Giants
For the second year in a row, the Giants made a late run, and in my opinion gave false hope to their fan base and maybe the front office. I still believe their best option would being acquire all the young players they can and build for something like the 2023 season and beyond. Besides, it is not like the Dodgers or Padres are going anywhere anytime soon.
- Reyes Moronta– A bullpen piece to start off here with the Giants. Might not be the sexy move that one would want to see the Atlanta Braves go after, but hey, every team needs bullpen help and the Atlanta Braves do as well especially since they seem to be losing a couple key pieces via free agency.
- Johnny Cueto– A couple things obviously stick out here. Cueto is not even close to being the pitcher he was years ago, and the Giants would without a doubt have to dump in a lot of change to facilitate any deal. Just for all intents and purposes though, I must say I only included Cueto here due to lack of options (since Donovan Solano is probably not available, for example).
- Wilmer Flores– If you notice a trend here, I like versatile players that can handle a bat pretty well on my bench. This is another player the Atlanta Braves could look to make a run at in the case they want to expand their bench and make it a little better than it has been over the past few seasons.
