The Braves are coming off a year where they made it to the post-season. This berth was way ahead of schedule as most observers didn’t expect them to contend until this year. They had some young guys come up and play out of their minds. Rookie of the Year Ronald Acuna provided the spark for the team along with veterans Freddie Freeman and Nick Markakis. The playoff run was ended by the Dodgers but the experience the team received was well worth it.
The Braves signed Josh Donaldson, re-signed Nick Markakis and welcomed back Brian McCann to their roster.
Acuna, Freeman and Ozzie Albies look to carry this team to another playoff berth.
