While the Atlanta Braves haven't yet fully addressed their rotation this offseason, that does not mean they have remained idle. Alex Anthopoulos has been a busy boy as he has made multiple trades to bolster the bullpen, add Jarred Kelenic to play left field, and to cull the 40 man roster significantly this offseason. One can have quibbles over the actual moves themselves, but it is clear that the Braves are continuing to look for ways to get better going into 2024.

For the most part, the Braves' lineup is going to look the same next season outside of the addition of Kelenic who will be replacing Eddie Rosario. It is theoretically possible that the Braves could try to make an position player upgrade, but that isn't altogether likely. Other additions to the bullpen are certainly on the table and the Braves remain firmly in search of another rotation arm, but there are several Braves whose current spots on the roster are in severe jeopardy even if the team doesn't make another move this offseason.

Here are the Braves players whose roster spots are in jeopardy going into 2024

Nothing is certain just yet. Due to the freeze on the free agent market because of Shohei Ohtani and Yoshinobu Yamamoto, this offseason is moving quite a bit slower overall than we are used to. We could see more moves that could alter the Braves' decision calculus significantly going into spring training. However, it cannot be denied that with all of the moves Atlanta has made this offseason, fans should expect the roster to look quite a bit different next season with several guys we are used to seeing on the outside looking in.

Let's take a look at some of the Braves players whose futures with Atlanta are very much in doubt after all of the Braves' activity this offseason.
