Mark Bowman in his weekly mailbag discusses what other moves the Atlanta Braves might make between now and spring training.
While I wouldn't necessarily anticipate the Braves making any significant moves over the rest of the winter, I think they still will attempt to cross a couple items off their wish list, which includes possibly adding an experienced reliever and third baseman.
Bowman also caught up with new GM Alex Anthopoulos to find out what he would be doing for the holidays.
Pretty neat tool here as Baseball Savant tracks which major league teams will travel the most miles in the upcoming season. The Braves come in at just under 28,000 which is 19th on the list. The Seattle Mariners are No. 1 at over 40,000.
Minor League Ball’s Wayne Cavadi shares his thoughts on who the Braves top prospects will be if Ronald Acuna and Luiz Gohara both open the season in the major leagues.
Speaking of the minors, Jim Callis gave Braves’ prospect Cristian Pache some high praise in his weekly mailbag segment.
The Braves may have the best prospect in baseball in Acuna, and they may have the best defensive outfield prospect in Pache, who figures to push Acuna to a corner when they both wind up in Atlanta. On the 20-80 scale, some evaluators hang 70s on Pache's center-field skills, arm and speed. Pache, the Braves' No. 10 prospect, has incredible range and instincts, and that strong arm allows him to play anywhere in the outfield he's needed.
