Jesse Chavez

Oh King Jesse, you will be missed. It is hysterical how Jesse Chavez finds his way back to the Braves as often as he does. Despite turning 40 years old last year, Chavez was turning in another excellent season during his fourth(!) stint with the Braves before he got hit in the leg by a comebacker and missed most of the second half. It is unclear if he will come back and play a 17th season in the big leagues, but Braves fans can take solace that Jesse is probably lurking in the bowels of Truist Park somewhere where he will reside until the heat death of the universe.

Adam Duvall

Adam Duvall left the Braves after the 2022 season to join the Red Sox having played a big role with the team in two separate stints. Inconsistency at the plate and injuries cost him a lot of playing time, but Duvall looked like Babe Ruth when he was on one of his patented hot streaks. Duvall had a nice, albeit injury-shortened season with Boston last year and both the Red Sox and Angels appear to be finalists to add him for the 2024 season.

Jorge Soler

If any Braves fans want a smile, just go watch the video of Jorge Soler stealing the souls of Astros fans when he launched a ball into orbit in Game Six of the 2021 World Series. That ball still probably hasn't landed yet. Soler went on to sign with the Marlins where he played the last couple of years. The first year wasn't great, but he mashed 36 homers last season and promptly opted out of the last year of his deal to hit free agency this offseason with the Diamondbacks, Red Sox, Blue Jays, and Mariners all being connected to him recently.
