The Atlanta Braves are no strangers to making good deals during the trade deadline to address needs. The team this season is very good and there are very few things that feel like need to be addressed.

Bullpen and starting pitching trades are always on the table as you can never have enough pitching depth. As for the offensive side of the ball, Atlanta has more than they could have hoped for in 2023 as the entire lineup has been doing well which is wild to consider with how bad Ozuna and Michael Harris II started their seasons.

Eddie Rosario also struggled early on but had started to find his swing. However, his recent defensive gaffs during the Braves series with the White Sox and removal from the game with hamstring tightness shows Atlanta may need to consider outfield options.

While Rosario isn't expected to miss a lot of time and is currently listed as day-to-day, we all know that status could change in an instant. It's likely the Braves will only focus on improving the bullpen or starting staff but it's fun to see what options exist as it pertains to outfielders. If Atlanta can improve other positions, why not at least see what's available?

With that in mind and the trade deadline approaching, let's look at outfielders the Braves could consider acquiring if Rosario needed an IL stint or if they want to add more depth to the team.
