The biggest move for the Atlanta Braves this winter was their acquisition of outfielder Jarred Kelenic. It was the biggest in a series of trades Alex Anthopoulos has pulled off so far this winter.
Kelenic spoke with the Atlanta media this week, sharing his reaction to the trade, excitement over the new opportunity, joining a club with so many talented teammates, what was working and not working for him at the plate last season, and the lessons he learned through adversity in 2023 that have him both focused on the future and seizing the day.
The Braves also pulled off another trade, a four-player swap with the Angels that netted veteran backup infielder David Fletcher. What does it mean that he was immediately dropped from the 40-man roster? What the Braves do over the course of the winter could help provide more clarity on that situation.
After losing three key members of their coaching staff, the Braves announced three new additions to the coaching staff. How will those men fit into the plans?
