As the playoffs continue the storylines surrounding the Atlanta Braves will shift to the upcoming offseason. Atlanta will soon have to get to work on its current roster which includes a number of soon-to-be free agents. The Braves will also have to decide the fate of four players whose contracts includes team options for next season.

Among those players are right-hander Julio Teheran, outfielder Nick Markakis, catcher Tyler Flowers and outfielder Billy Hamilton. Atlanta has until five days after the completion of the World Series to make a decision and they will likely take every bit of that time as general manager Alex Anthopoulos pointed out this past Thursday.

“Now, we can talk to clubs that are not in the playoffs on trades and things like that,” Anthopoulos said. “We’ve already done some prep work on free agency and so on. But we’ll make those (option) determinations five days after the World Series, or right in that time period.”
