9 potential Atlanta Braves reunions to look for in 2024

As we look forward to 2024, there are nine former Braves on the free agent market who can fill needs on the team.

If the Braves don't want to platoon the LF spot, the 2021 World Series MVP might be perfect to fill it as a full-time starter.

Soler currently has a $13 million player option he will almost certainly decline. This option was initially $9 million, but he hit every escalator to increase it by $4 million.

The righty slugger made his first All-Star team this season and hit 36 homers with a 128 OPS+. Soler could add significant pop to an already powerful team.

However, his contract will almost certainly be higher than the three-year, $36 million contract he signed after the 2021 season, and might be out of the Braves price range.

4. Robbie Grossman

Another platoon option for the LF spot, Robbie Grossman has been in a platoon role for the Texas Rangers this year, although he's somehow found more PAs against righties than lefties.

On the whole, Grossman was exactly league-average as a hitter in 2023 but was much stronger against left-handed pitching, slashing 309/.416/.536 (.953 OPS) in 137 PAs.

Grossman would be a good fit for the Braves regardless if they stick with Rosario or find a different left-handed bat like Heyward.

5. Adam Duvall

This signing would make Blooper very happy.

Adam Duvall has had a weird career with the Braves. Before 2022, he hadn't played with the Braves before July, despite playing games for the Braves in 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021.

While the Braves primarily used Duvall in a platoon role during most of his tenure, the Red Sox were using him as a full-time starter.

The slugging OF had his most productive season of his career, hitting 21 homers and having a 119 OPS+ in just 92 games. He missed three months with a broken wrist.

Duvall did take a step back defensively, going from 5 OAA in just 709.1 innings in 2022 to -4 OAA in 692.1 innings in 2023. However, the 35-year-old was still a positive defender at the corners, and the Braves would no longer need him in CF like they did in 2021 and part of 2022.
