Kris Bryant

No doubt that Kris Bryant’s 2020 season was his worst so far in his career but he has simply too much talent to not bounce back and at least get close to his normal career numbers.

The Cubs have seeming started a small scale rebuild at least and are one of many clubs looking to shed salary and moving Bryant would do just that and get a couple young pieces before he likely moves on from them via free agency next Winter.

Kris Bryant coming to the Atlanta Braves could be another version of a 1 year plug in for the Braves.

Eugenio Suarez

Another NL Central club who is seemingly trying to move anyone who is owed decent money. Eugenio Suarez is another big time power threat that does come with a little give off via the average column. However, if the Braves are willing to live with that, perhaps Suarez could be of great value?

Suarez is not the priciest option here but he is signed through the 2024 season at worst for the reasonable margin of around $11M per season.

Nolan Arenado

The biggest fish in all of the sea though lies in the Rocky mountains of Denver. Nolan Arenado is a premier player in the game and almost any club would attempt to pry him away. The Atlanta Braves would be no different.

The defense is premier, and the power is as well. I do believe Arenado would be just as good outside of Coors as he has been inside it.

The only holdup is the contract. Arenado has the option to opt out after the 2021 season and most teams are not going to give up lots of good young talent for 1 year despite how good he is. That would be something that maybe the clubs and the player could work out if a deal were to come together.
