The Daily Chop: Spring Training Roster, Kipnis, Homegrown Stars, and more

The Braves dropped the first iteration of their spring roster on Monday. Will it change?

The Braves released their Spring Training roster on Monday. This iteration included 25 non-roster invitees, 12 of which were prospects. It also included the newest addition in Jason Kipnis, who signed a minor league deal with Atlanta. His presence will hopefully help to stabilize what is currently a very paltry Braves bench, but additional acquisitions may be a necessity as well. Atlanta looks well-stocked in the rotation, but could stand to add a piece or two to every other position group. Will they make any more notable additions, or will a collection of minor league deals round out the spring roster?
