Three players from every NL West team the Atlanta Braves could acquire
5 of 6
The Diamondbacks had a miserable 2020 season as nothing went right and players had seasons they would rather forget quickly. I think the snakes would rather forget some of their recent signings and sort of start over. They could easily start the process this Winter and start dealing away some assets that could net them some prospects back in return. Possibly the Atlanta Braves could help with that.
- David Peralta– Peralta would fit nicely in the middle tier of almost any lineup in the game. The Atlanta Braves would be no different as he could slide into an outfield spot and right into the 5- or 6-spot in the lineup. After all, Peralta would be a step up from the previous left-hander who has been playing the outfield in Atlanta.
- Kole Calhoun– Most of what we just said about Peralta could also apply to Calhoun, just tab it down a little bit because he is not quite the player Peralta is. Calhoun would in all likelihood serve as yet another platoon partner candidate with Duvall.
- Eduardo Escobar– Remember a couple of years ago when some reporters incorrectly pegged the Atlanta Braves as the team that was signing third baseman Escobar from free agency? Obviously, they were wrong but it still does not mean that Escobar could not be a fit for the Atlanta Braves now. If the Diamondbacks were to trade him, they would be selling low as he is coming off one of his worst seasons as a pro like many other Dbacks.
