The Atlanta Braves have been quite fortunate to be able to keep most of their core intact over the last several years. Sure, there have been some notable departures like Freddie Freeman and Dansby Swanson, but the Braves have still been among the best in all of baseball at extending their guys and maintaining their roster's strength each year.

No team is completely immune from players hitting free agency, though. From guys that played key roles in big moments to others that Braves fans wish had done more, the population of Braves alumni has steadily grown across the league. With the slow pace of this offseason, many of those players find themselves still looking for a team to play for in 2024.

Here are former Braves players that are still free agents

The goal here isn't to make an exhaustive list of every guy that has ever worn a Braves uniform because, well, that would take forever and many of those names wouldn't be particularly interesting. At the end of the day, not every bullpen stopgap or bench player is worth thinking about too much.

Instead, this is a look at former Braves from this past season and years past that were notable in one way or another. Even just going that far, it is remarkable to see how wide the Braves' sphere of influence reaches across the game of baseball. Plus, it is fun to check in and see how some of these guys are doing as many were important parts of Braves history.

Let's take a look at what these 10 former Braves are up to.

Eddie Rosario

Braves fans remember fondly how Eddie Rosario almost singlehandedly beat the Dodgers in the 2021 NLCS. While he was good throughout that postseason run, his performance in that series etched his name in Atlanta lore and was among the best playoff performances in recent history period. Playoff series MVP awards often don't mean all that much, but Rosario certainly earned the title in that Dodgers series.

Unfortunately, issues with his eyes the following season brought his production down considerably in 2022. While he was mostly fine last season, the Braves decided to go in a different direction in left field and declined his $9 million option for 2024 and traded for Jarred Kelenic instead. He'll probably get a one year deal somewhere for next season, although there hasn't been really any information as to where that could be so far.
