It is hardly a secret that the Atlanta Braves have a loaded roster, particularly on the position player side. You don't get to 80 wins in mid August by running out a bunch of league average guys and role players. This is a team full of absolute studs that are capable of beating any team on any given night.
At the end of the day, the most important thing is that a team plays well together to put up wins and the Braves' chemistry on the field and in the clubhouse has been a huge factor in their success during this run since 2018. However, a nice added bonus of having a roster full of uber-talented guys is that fans get to see their favorite players in contention for some individual hardware after the season as well.
Here are 4 Braves players that are playing their way into awards consideration in 2023
The focus here is mostly going to be on the major awards. Silver Sluggers are really cool honors and one can fully expect the Braves to have a bunch of guys in contention for them, but they aren't going to be a focus here because the line has to be drawn somewhere. Also, a lot can change between now and the end of the season. A couple bad starts or a slump for a couple weeks could change the complexion of these races dramatically. That is just the name of the game.
Let's take a look at four of the Braves' major awards contenders going into the home stretch of the 2023 season.
