There it is! My best guess at the Braves roster in 2022.
I am sure I will look back on this in a few months and wonder what I was thinking.
It is a way too early roster projection, so I am sure I will miss several of these. As things become clearer in the coming months, it could be fun to take another look at this exercise and guess again towards the end of the season.
The recent trades at the trade deadline changed a few of the guesses I was considering. I thought the Braves may look to make a big move this off-season, but the moves they made over the past week look to have been made with 2022 in mind.
Most of the guys acquired this year have a good shot to find themselves back to Atlanta in 2022, however, that can change based on their performance.
Plus, there is still a shot for a big move this off-season. While the Braves farm system may not be as deep as it once was, there is still plenty of ammo to pull off a big move if necessary. They could also try to wait until the next deadline to unload some of the assets in a trade.
In the next few months, we will start getting a better idea of guys who will be available and who could be viable targets for the Braves this winter.
It is tough to predict the roster for next year at this moment, but I gave it my best shot.
